Hi, new topic:

is it technically feasible to link pdftex with readline ?

My query is actually for etex, the latter being a symlink to pdftex,

Or perhaps have a rletex ? ? but RL will create confusion
due to Right to Left en Left to Right existing with other
meanings in the *TeX world.

I use rlwrap for comfort in worksheet sessions with etex
but sometimes forget about it and must kill the job and
start from scratch,
