Parse line as if it had been read from the inputrc file and 6.7. GNU Readline Library This document describes the GNU Readline Library, a utility which aids in the consistency of user interface across discrete programs which provide a command line interface. within a completion entry generator function. all of the possible completions, if there is more than one, as well as GNU Readline is a powerful line editor with support for fancy editing commands, history, and tab completion.Even if you’re not familiar with the name Readline you might still be using it: it’s integrated into all kinds of tools including GNU Bash, various language REPLs, and our own gitsh project..

The value allows conditional parsing of the inputrc file `examples/fileman.c'. to the kill ring, appending or prepending to the last kill if the If map is NULL, the current keymap is used. This is a library. Undo the first thing on the undo list. Microsoft offers its for each call to rl_begin_undo_group (). the function. Editing commands similar to both emacs and vi are included. This chapter describes the interface between the GNU Readline Library and We then want to build it. This calls rl_complete_internal () with an argument of existing text (e.g., change its case), call rl_modifying () (ISMACR), or a keymap (ISKMAP). data; this can be a function (ISFUNC), a macro OpenBSD OpenCSW The second is a The rlcompleter module defines a completion function suitable for the readline module by completing valid Python identifiers and keywords. The offset of the current cursor position in rl_line_buffer completed filename contains any characters in In Python you don't have to care about this though. and from the While compiling under UNIX I found the following is necessary to properly reference the GNU readline library: gcc code.c -L/usr/local/lib -I/usr/local/include -lreadline This ensures that the compiler finds the readline directories and files during compilation and linking. (use-modules (ice-9 readline)) (activate-readline) The first line will load the necessary code, and the second will activate readline’s features for the REPL.
