\fB::tclreadline::readline\fP \fIcommand\fP [\fIoptions\fP]


.SH DESCRIPTION

The \fBtclreadline\fP package makes the gnu readline available
to the scripting language tcl. The package is thought primarily
for developers, who want to use the line editing and history expansion
capabilities of the gnu readline while interactively developing


tcl scripts. tclreadline can also be used for tcl scripts
which want to use a shell like input interface. In this case the
\fB::tclreadline::read\fP command has to be called explicitly. This 
command will print a prompt and return the line which was typed
by the user.

.PP

The advantage of \fBtclreadline\fP is that it uses the callback
handler mechanism of the gnu readline while it processes tcl
events. This way X events from a wish gui will processed as
well as events from the \fPtclreadline\fP line interface.

\fB::tclreadline::readline\fP \fIcommand\fP [\fIoptions\fP]


.SH DESCRIPTION

The \fBtclreadline\fP package makes the gnu readline available
to the scripting language tcl. The primary purpose of the package
is to facilitate the interactive script development by the means
of word and file name completion as well as history expansion
(well known from shells like bash).

Additionally tclreadline can also be used for tcl scripts
which want to use a shell like input interface. In this case the
\fB::tclreadline::readline read\fP command has to be called explicitly.



.PP

The advantage of \fBtclreadline\fP is that it uses the callback
handler mechanism of the gnu readline while it processes tcl
events. This way X events from a wish gui will processed as
well as events from the \fPtclreadline\fP line interface.
