14.2 > Libraries > libedit (20191231_3.1)

This is an autotool- and libtoolized port of the NetBSD Editline library
(libedit). This Berkeley-style licensed command line editor library
provides generic line editing, history, and tokenization functions,
similar to those found in GNU Readline.

The slackbuild has a build time variable called LIBEDIT_WIDEC, which if
set to `yes', turns on the wide character support of the built libedit
library. Although the support is there, initial testing shows that it
acts weird, and displays Unicode byte sequences instead of the real
typed-in characters. You can experiment with it, but don't count on it
until it is cleared up. The default build option was and is disabled
widechar support.
