I am building Python 2.1.1 on SGI IRIX64 platform.
I have downloaded and installed the GNU readline package
from GNU. I am having trouble figuring out how to tell
the Python 2.1.1 build to:
- build readline into the interpreter
- use the include and lib paths where my readline is
installed during the Python build.
I want to be able to use the command completion, editing, and
history features at the Python interpreter.
Has anyone done this on SGI. The Solaris and Linux platforms
I have built Python 2.1.1 on have all been easy to get readline
support at the commandline to build and work.
