7.8 Readline Support

Guile comes with an interface module to the readline library (see GNU Readline Library). This makes interactive use much more convenient, because of the command-line editing features of readline. Using (ice-9 readline), you can navigate through the current input line with the cursor keys, retrieve older command lines from the input history and even search through the history entries.
