Successor to cl-readline.

New in release 0.16:
- Should work on Lispworks and OpenMCL/CCL.
Bug-reports appreciated. Patches appreciated even more.
Well, submitting bugs and patches is not allowed at all without having a pre-existing gitlab account, there's no apparant way to get a gitlab account, and the mailing list link leads to a 404 page not found, so perhaps bug-reports and patches aren't all that appreciated after all. But maybe you meant submitting bug reports on the page here? I can do that!
This is for SBCL 1.2.10 on Arch Linux, readline library version 6.3
- pressing "Up-arrow" introduces garbage binary data to the input, if you are at the beginning of input history. Checking whether you are at the beginning of a list is pretty basic stuff... so this package should probably do that.
- I don't know why I was having trouble with end-of-file conditions. It started working for some reason, ctrl-d and it prompts and lets me exit.
In your .sbclrc:
And then in your .emacs:
(setq inferior-lisp-program "sbcl --noinform --no-linedit")
You might also want to add :eof-quits t to the install-repl form.
Another way is instead to say in your .sbclrc
which doesn't require having a separate file for your ordinary initialization code. -- James A. Crippen
How do you make this second method work? I can't and don't see how since SBCL by necessity processes its initfiles before it gets around loading swank. -- Nikodemus Siivola
