JNI wrapper around GNU Readline / libedit / libgetline
Java-Readline is a port of GNU Readline for Java. Or, to be more precise, it is a JNI-wrapper to Readline. It is distributed under the LGPL.
You must call Readline.loadReadlineLibrary lib; before using any other methods. If you omit the call to the load-method, the pure Java fallback solution is used. Possible values for lib are
ReadlineLibrary.PureJava ReadlineLibrary.GnuReadline ReadlineLibrary.Editline ReadlineLibrary.Getline
Note that all programs using GnuReadline will fall under the GPL, since Gnu-Readline is GPL software!
