'Linedit' is a readline-style library that provides customizable line editing features. It uses UFFI for foreign bindings, so it is (theoretically) portable. It supersedes Cl-readline. It functions as both a single line text reader and a nulti-line form reader. It has completion on packages and symbols in the current image, as well as on directories and filenames. It has unlimited undo, kill-ring, and history, as well as paren matching.
