Readline

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.

See RDoc for Readline module.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'readline'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install readline

Usage

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

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
