rlwrap readline wrapper

rlwrap [rlwrap options] command ...

rlwrap runs the specified command, intercepting user input in order to
provide readline's line editing, persistent history and completion.
rlwrap tries to be completely transparent you should not notice any
difference between command and rlwrap command except the added read
line functionality, of course. This should even hold true when you are
re directing or piping from and to command. There are many options to
add (programmable) completion, handle multi line input, colour and re
write prompts. If you don't need them (and you probably don't), you can
skip the rest of this manpage.

a, always readline []
Always remain in "readline mode", regardless of command's termi
nal settings. Use this option if you want to use rlwrap with
commands that already use readline. On a linux system you'll
probably want to add the N option. NB: With this option,
rlwrap will echo (and save) passwords, unless you give command's
password prompt as an argument. The argument is optional; if
given, it has to directly follow the option without an inter
vening space.

A, ansi colour aware
Prompts that use colour will confuse rlwrap, especially at the
end of long input lines. This option will make rlwrap better
behaved in such cases. If the prompt contains anything fancier
than ANSI colour codes, this option may actually make things

b, break chars
Consider the specified characters word breaking (whitespace is
always word breaking). This determines what is considered a
"word", both when completing and when building a completion word
list from files specified by f options following (not preced
ing!) it. Default list (){}[],+ =&^%$
