This is version 1.6.1 of the tecla command-line editing library.
For the current official release, please direct your browser to:
The tecla library provides UNIX and LINUX programs with interactive
command line editing facilities, similar to those of the unix tcsh
shell. In addition to simple command-line editing, it supports recall
of previously entered command lines, TAB completion of file names, and
in-line wild-card expansion of filenames. The internal functions
which perform file-name completion and wild-card expansion are also
available externally for optional use by programs, along with a module
for tab-completion and lookup of filenames in a list of directories.
Note that special care has been taken to allow the use of this library
in threaded programs. The option to enable this is discussed in the
Makefile, and specific discussions of thread safety are presented in
the included man pages.
For instructions on how to compile and install the library, please see
the INSTALL file, which should be in the same directory as this file.
