Description torok 2000-04-06 08:32:13 UTC
In all previous redhat releases gnu-readline was compiled in the gnuplot
package now it comes with gnuplot's own dummy lineediting facility.

In the source the configure script does not check whether readline-devel is
installed but by default uses the internal one. According to experiences
gnu-readline support has to be added manually.

The most annoying inconvenience of the internal readline is the missing
filename completition and strange long line handling.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-04-06 17:48:59 UTC
Hm, looks like it changed from --with-gnu-readline to --with-readline=gnu.

Fixed in gnuplot-3.7.1-5.
