Hi Jython devs,
I haven't used jython for a while, and I'm not entirely up to
date on the whole readline-in-jython issue, but from a bit of browsing I can see
that it's still lacking such an interface.
I wanted to point out to you guys a utility I developed,
called uniread, which adds readline support to any existing command-line
program. Including, for example, jython. I noticed the FAQ mentions a similar
readline front-end that comes with something called Yorick. I can't say I'm
currently too familiar with Yorick and that particular utility, so I don't know
about the pros and cons.
To the point - I thought uniread might be useful to the jython user
community, but since I'm not currently an active user I wasn't sure
if the whole readline issue is still of interest, so I didn't want to
go and spam the jython-users list needlessly. If you find it of use, please do
pass it on...
