Minix editline is the line editing library from Minix, originally created by Simmule R. Turner and Rich $alz in 1992. It can be linked into almost any program to provide command-line editing and history. The editline library is call-compatible with the FSF readline library, but is a fraction of the size and offers fewer features. It is distributed under a "C News-like" copyright; see the file LICENSE for details.

Release Notes: This release marks the end of a huge effort to hand merge several forks of the original editline sources into one base. Sources examined include: Heimdal, Festival speech-tools, Debian, and patches by Steve Tell. Notable changes are: custom completion handlers, correct handling of 8-bit input, support for binding keys, capitalizing words, huge code cleanups, and improved compatibility with FSF readline.
