the primary purpose of pyreadline is to provide windows users with an
implementation of the functionality of GNU readline which is availbale
on most unix like platforms. Readline provides an improved experience
when working at the interactive prompt by supporting history, command
line editing, copy paste, search through the history buffer etc.
Pyreadline has a console backend that can be replaced for different
kinds of consoles. Currently there one for the standard windows console
and an experimental one for ironpython. I'm planning to include a patch
to support a callback interface which I think will be useful for
inclusion of pyreadline in a gui event handler. I'm going to try to do
this during the coming week. Hope this description helps.
