Package “readline” Flag Description
app-emulation/x48 Enables support for libreadline
dev-java/jython Use GNU readline instead of jline
dev-lang/ruby Use the sys-libs/readline library to provide the readline extension, used for instance by the irb tool. This flag is meaningful only if the libedit USE flag is disabled. If neither libedit nor readline USE flags are enabled, the readline extension will not be built (and irb will lose line editing functionality).
dev-libs/libpcre Add support for command line editing to pcretest, through sys-libs/readline.
dev-libs/libpcre2 Add support for command line editing to pcretest, through sys-libs/readline.
