the macro `isident()'. Fixed movement bug which prevents
continious movement through the text.
Fri Jul 27 16:47:01 1990 Brian Fox (bfox at
* readline.c (parser_if) Allow "$if term=foo" construct.
Wed May 23 16:10:33 1990 Brian Fox (bfox at
* readline.c (rl_dispatch) Correctly remember the last command
executed. Fixed typo in username_completion_function ().
Mon Apr 9 19:55:48 1990 Brian Fox (bfox at
* readline.c: username_completion_function (); For text passed in
with a leading `~', remember that this could be a filename (after
it is completed).
Thu Apr 5 13:44:24 1990 Brian Fox (bfox at
* readline.c: rl_search_history (): Correctly handle case of an
unfound search string, but a graceful exit (as with ESC).
* readline.c: rl_restart_output (); The Apollo passes the address
of the file descriptor to TIOCSTART, not the descriptor itself.
Tue Mar 20 05:38:55 1990 Brian Fox (bfox at
* readline.c: rl_complete (); second call in a row causes possible
completions to be listed.
* readline.c: rl_redisplay (), added prompt_this_line variable
which is the first character character following \n in prompt.
Sun Mar 11 04:32:03 1990 Brian Fox (bfox at
* Signals are now supposedly handled inside of SYSV compilation.
Wed Jan 17 19:24:09 1990 Brian Fox (bfox at
* history.c: history_expand (); fixed overwriting memory error,
added needed argument to call to get_history_event ().
Thu Jan 11 10:54:04 1990 Brian Fox (bfox at
* readline.c: added mark_modified_lines to control the
display of an asterisk on modified history lines. Also
added a user variable called mark-modified-lines to the
`set' command.
Thu Jan 4 10:38:05 1990 Brian Fox (bfox at
* readline.c: start_insert (). Only use IC if we don't have an im
Fri Sep 8 09:00:45 1989 Brian Fox (bfox at aurel)
* readline.c: rl_prep_terminal (). Only turn on 8th bit
as meta-bit iff the terminal is not using parity.
Sun Sep 3 08:57:40 1989 Brian Fox (bfox at aurel)
* readline.c: start_insert (). Uses multiple
insertion call in cases where that makes sense.
rl_insert (). Read type-ahead buffer for additional
keys that are bound to rl_insert, and insert them
all at once. Make insertion of single keys given
with an argument much more efficient.
Tue Aug 8 18:13:57 1989 Brian Fox (bfox at aurel)
* readline.c: Changed handling of EOF. readline () returns
(char *)EOF or consed string. The EOF character is read from the
tty, or if the tty doesn't have one, defaults to C-d.
* readline.c: Added support for event driven programs.
rl_event_hook is the address of a function you want called
while Readline is waiting for input.
* readline.c: Cleanup time. Functions without type declarations
do not use return with a value.
* history.c: history_expand () has new variable which is the
characters to ignore immediately following history_expansion_char.
Sun Jul 16 08:14:00 1989 Brian Fox (bfox at aurel)
* rl_prep_terminal ()
BSD version turns off C-s, C-q, C-y, C-v.
* readline.c -- rl_prep_terminal ()
SYSV version hacks readline_echoing_p.
BSD version turns on passing of the 8th bit for the duration
of reading the line.
Tue Jul 11 06:25:01 1989 Brian Fox (bfox at aurel)
* readline.c: new variable rl_tilde_expander.
If non-null, this contains the address of a function to call if
the standard meaning for expanding a tilde fails. The function is
called with the text sans tilde (as in "foo"), and returns a
malloc()'ed string which is the expansion, or a NULL pointer if
there is no expansion.
* readline.h - new file chardefs.h
Separates things that only readline.c needs from the standard
header file publishing interesting things about readline.
* readline.c:
readline_default_bindings () now looks at terminal chararacters
and binds those as well.
Wed Jun 28 20:20:51 1989 Brian Fox (bfox at aurel)
* Made readline and history into independent libraries.
