The Readline module provides interface for GNU Readline. This module defines a number of methods to facilitate completion and accesses input history from the Ruby interpreter. This module supported Edit Line(libedit) too. libedit is compatible with GNU Readline.

GNU Readline

http://www.gnu.org/directory/readline.html

libedit

http://www.thrysoee.dk/editline/

Reads one inputted line with line edit by Readline.readline method. At this time, the facilitatation completion and the key bind like Emacs can be operated like GNU Readline.

require "readline"
while buf = Readline.readline("> ", true)
  p buf
end

The content that the user input can be recorded to the history. The history can be accessed by Readline::HISTORY constant.

require "readline"
while buf = Readline.readline("> ", true)
  p Readline::HISTORY.to_a
  print("-> ", buf, "\n")
end

Most of methods raise SecurityError exception if $SAFE is 4.
