Devel::REPL::Plugin::RUseriContributed)Devel::REPL::Plugin::ReadLineHistory(3)

NAME
       Devel::REPL::Plugin::ReadLineHistory - Integrate	history	with the
       facilities provided by Term::ReadLine

VERSION
       version 1.003028

DESCRIPTION
       This plugin enables loading and saving command line history from	a file
       as well has history expansion of	previous commands using	the !-syntax a
       la bash.

       By default, history expansion is	enabled	with this plugin when using
       Term::ReadLine::Gnu. That means that "loose" '!'	characters will	be
       treated as history events which may not be what you wish.

       To avoid	this, you need to quote	the '!'	with '\':

	 my $var = "foo\!";

       or place	the arguments in single	quotes---but enable the
       "Term::ReadLine"	attribute "history_quotes_inhibit_expansion":

	 $_REPL->term->Attribs->{history_quotes_inhibit_expansion} = 1;
	 my $var = 'foo!';

       and to disable history expansion	from GNU readline/history do

	 $_REPL->term->Attribs->{do_expand} = 0;

CONFLICTS
       Note that Term::ReadLine::Perl does not support a history expansion
       method.	In that	case, you may wish to use the Devel::REPL History
       plugin which provides similar functions.	 Work is underway to make use
       of either History or ReadLineHistory> consistent	for expansion with
       either the Term::ReadLine::Gnu support or Term::ReadLine::Perl.
