haskeline: A command-line interface for user input, written in Haskell.

[ bsd3, library, user-interfaces ] [ Propose Tags ]

Haskeline provides a user interface for line input in command-line programs. This library is similar in purpose to readline, but since it is written in Haskell it is (hopefully) more easily used in other Haskell programs.

Haskeline runs both on POSIX-compatible systems and on Windows.


Automatic Flags

Use the terminfo package for POSIX consoles.


Explicitly link against the libiconv library.


Use the legacy iconv encoding for POSIX, even on ghc>=7.4.1. (Intended for testing only.)


Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info


Note: This package has metadata revisions in the cabal description newer than included in the tarball. To unpack the package including the revisions, use 'cabal get'.
