Term-ReadLine-Zoid 0.07 ======================= ABOUT This package provides a set of modules that form an interactive input buffer written in plain perl with minimal dependencies. It features almost all key-bindings described in the posix spec for the sh(1) utility with some extensions like multiline editing; this includes a vi-command mode with a save-buffer (for copy-pasting) and an undo-stack. It is compatible with the Term::ReadLine interface, so it can be used with perl programs using this interface. DEPENDENCIES The only real dependencies for this package are Term::ReadKey and AutoLoader which are available from cpan. One function in the vi command mode needs File::Temp, but as long as you don't use this function you don't need the module. You might also want to consider to install Env::PS1 if you want a fancy prompt. INSTALL Try something like: $ perl Build.PL $ ./Build test $ ./Build install See the Module::Build documentation for advanced build options.
