           Summary: Make testkjs's readline() function use the readline lib
                    when available
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 525+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebCore JavaScript
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: sam at webkit.org


I am wavering on whether it is a good idea or not, but perhaps we should use
the readline lib (libedit on the mac, originally GNU Readline) when call the
readline() function in testkjs,  The pro's are that it makes all the normal
terminal behaviors (arrow keys, C-a/C-e etc.) available to the user.  The con's
are that it feel wrong.  Not sure why.
