I've been playing with readline under MinGW.
I downloaded base readline 4.2 and applied the patch from source-forge
mingw readline-4.2-2001<etc>.zip. The examples/rltest.exe program seems to
work under Cygwin and under cmd, but not under msys/rxvt. Any suggestions
how I can make it work?
Octave requires at least readline 4.2a. I applied the patch to base
readline 4.2a, fixed all the rejected hunks, and the simple examples/rltest
program works as above. Where is the best place to send the updated
but not well tested patch?
The patch was much harder to apply to readline 4.3. I got it to compile,
but not to recognize the arrow keys, etc. I don't have time to sort this
out, but I can send my patch if someone else wants to pursue it.
Thanks in advance,
