LIBTECLA(3LIB) Interface Libraries LIBTECLA(3LIB)

libtecla - interactive command line input library

cc [ flag... ] file... -ltecla [ library... ]
#include <libtecla.h>

This library provides programs with interactive command line editing facilities, similar to those of the UNIX tcsh shell. In addition to simple command-line editing, it supports recall of previously entered command lines, TAB completion of file names or other tokens, and in-line wildcard expansion of filenames. The internal functions that perform file-name completion and wild-card expansion are also available externally for optional use by the calling program.

The terminfo functions setupterm(3CURSES), tigetstr(3CURSES), tigetnum(3CURSES), and tputs(3CURSES) are not reentrant. This condition, however, should not prevent use of this library in threaded applications, since few applications will want to interact with multiple terminals.

The shared object provides the public interfaces defined below. See Intro(3) for additional information on shared object interfaces.
