Haskeline

The Haskeline library 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.

Features:

  • Provides a rich line editing interface which may be customized in a ~/.haskeline file.
  • Runs on POSIX-compatible systems, using the terminfo library to support non-ANSI terminals.
  • Runs on Windows using MinGW (Cygwin support is TODO).
  • Supports Unicode cross-platform.
  • History recall and incremental search.
  • Custom tab completion functions which may run in an arbitrary monad.

The latest release, as well as the API documentation, may be obtained from Hackage at http://hackage.haskell.org/cgi-bin/hackage-scripts/package/haskeline.

The most recent development source code can be downloaded with: darcs get http://code.haskell.org/haskeline

Further documentation is also available on this trac wiki.
