2.4.6 Customizing readline

Octave uses the GNU Readline library for command-line editing and history features. Readline is very flexible and can be modified through a configuration file of commands (See the GNU Readline library for the exact command syntax). The default configuration file is normally ‘~/.inputrc’.

Octave provides two commands for initializing Readline and thereby changing the command line behavior.

Built-in Function: read_readline_init_file (file)

Read the readline library initialization file file. If file is omitted, read the default initialization file (normally ‘~/.inputrc’).

See (readline)Readline Init File section `Readline Init File' in GNU Readline Library, for details.

Built-in Function: re_read_readline_init_file ()

Re-read the last readline library initialization file that was read. See (readline)Readline Init File section `Readline Init File' in GNU Readline Library, for details.
