Is there any known bugs with readline-5.1 on Cygwin? I've tracked down my
problem compiling and running CGDB to this package.
In linux, everything works fine, although I know these problems could
lie anywhere. CGDB uses the alternative callback mechanism of the readline
library. I had several contributions to readline, which improved the readline
library's alterntive callback mode.
Does the Cygwin distro patch readline-5.1? If so, where can I see these
Basically, I think when I link to readline and call
rl_callback_handler_install, it is modifing the terminal on stdout, even
though I don't run readline on that terminal. I open a new terminal, and apply
readline to that.
