The Tecla library provides programs with interactive command line editing facilities, similar to those of the unix tcsh shell. It supports recall and editing of previously entered command lines, TAB completion of file names and application specific tokens, and in-line wild-card expansion of filenames. The optionally reentrant modules which perform TAB completion and wild-card expansion are also available separately for general use.
