Minix editline: A free readline() for UNIX

This is a line editing library. It can be linked into almost any program to provide command-line editing and history. It is call-compatible with the FSF readline library, but is a fraction of the size and offers fewer features.

The editline library was created by Simmule Turner and Rich Salz back in 1992. At the time they chose to distribute the code under a “C News-like” copyright, see the file LICENSE for details.

The small size <30k, lack of dependencies no ncurses needed! and the free license should make this library interesting to many embedded developers
