Re: progamming with Cygwin GNU Readline Library


Thank you for your prompt reply.  I've found my bug by your hint.

Yes, I'm running in a window.  I installed rxvt and try on
it.  Now I get the correct results.

I investigate a source of the GNU Readline, terminal.c, and found that
the screen width is decrimented by one on a terminal which does not
support auto-wrap function.  TERM=cygwin is the case.

The test script in my perl module had a bug. I'm sorry that I made you
spend your time for my bug.

I understand as you do.

Thank you.
