Part of the series: GNU Readline

GNU Readline is a software library that provides line-editing and history capabilities for interactive programs with a command-line interface, such as Bash. It is currently maintained by Chet Ramey as part of the GNU Project. This series looks at some of the features of this powerful library.

GNU Readline 2

Enjoying the series. I am doing a tutorial on creating a LisP in C (which I heard about on HPR) and it uses Readline. So I came back to listen to this series. I always learn something. There's always an "Aha!" moment. Thanks!
