33.5. Advanced Readline and History Functionality

The READLINE module exports most of the GNU readline functions using FFI.

This module is present even in the base linking set by default on platforms where both GNU readline and FFI are available.

When this module is present, *FEATURES* contains the symbol :READLINE.

See modules/readline/test.tst for sample usage.

Lisp-level Functionality

A STREAM (see Section 21.17, “Functions EXT:MAKE-BUFFERED-INPUT-STREAM and EXT:MAKE-BUFFERED-OUTPUT-STREAM) that receives user input using GNU readline and the standard CLISP prompt.
