For those who are using qrsh and would like to maintain some sort of 
readline based terminal settings, you can use rlwrap to overlay gnu 


We originally looked at using the ssh instead of the builtin sge rsh, to 
be "tty/ptty compliant" but decided not to.  A smart person at our 
company pointed us at rlwrap and now at least have a readline capability 
with our qrsh jobs.  (Don't try any stty settings though!)

rlwrap qrsh  <some interactive EDA program>

(We actually have a front end wrapper around qrsh so we don't even need 
to tell our users this :)


 From the README


rlwrap is a 'readline wrapper' that uses the GNU readline library 
<http://cnswww.cns.cwru.edu/%7Echet/readline/rltop.html> to allow the 
editing of keyboard input for any other command. Input history is 
remembered across invocations, separately for each command; history 
completion and search work as in bash and completion word lists can be 
specified on the command line.
