I'm packaging Axiom (Savannah CVS Des 30, 2004) for
ALT Linux (www.altlinux.com).  Now graphics works well
under sman.  But there are a few glitches I'd like to
report on:

3. I have some troubles with clef. It doesn't understand
^end and ^delete keys. ^home and ^backspace works fine.
So normally I start axiom without clef. GCL has readline
input line editing support which works OK.
Unfortunately GCL's line editing doesn't work under sman (with -noclef). I'm seeking the way to patch clef on


Try rlfe --unknown, Thu, 20 Apr 2006 02:44:09 -0500

rlfe is a small command line utility using GNU readline. It
is included in the readline source distribution, but not compiled 
by default. You can get it also as a precompiled debian package. 
Invoke with:

rlfe -h ~/.axiom.hist axiom -noclef

Works pretty well, no problems with end and delete and you get 
all the features of GNU readline. It could also be extended to 
do command completion.
