An exceptr from the description of the debian libreadline-java package :
it merely contains JNI wrappers for the standard system libraries
I extrapolate from this that the java readline library still requires
the C readline library to work. The readline library is available on
windows with cygwin, but I have no idea what the hurdles or pitfalls
of trying to combine (win32-only) java binaries with cygwin-linked
binaries. I also don't know if it is possible to compile readline
without the cygwin emulation layer.
A man of many companions may come to ruin,
but there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.
