rlwrap is a readline wrapper, a small utility that uses the GNU readline library to allow the editing of keyboard input for any other command. It maintains a separate input history for each command, and can TAB-expand words using all previously seen words and/or a user-specified file.
Release Notes: A bug that caused an I/O error after a keyboard interrupt (Ctrl-C) was fixed. An option has been added to use polling to keep rlwrap's idea of the slave terminal up-to-date.
Release Notes: Lots of small bugs (most of them platform-specific) were fixed. Users can now specify filename extensions for temporary files when editing multi-line input.
Release Notes: A compilation problem with gcc on armel has been fixed. Programs that emit status lines with lots of carriage returns (like darcs) will no longer confuse rlwrap.
Release Notes: A few minor bugs (like double echo when accepting a line from vi command mode) have been fixed
Release Notes: This release adds many small improvements and fixes for filtering and multi-line input. Cooking (i.e., coloring or re-writing) prompts can be avoided by "rejecting" them, from a filter, or when they don't match a given regexp. There now is a --one-shot option for easier use within shell scripts.
