2.4.7 Modifying Text

Function: int rl_insert_text (const char *text)

Insert text into the line at the current cursor position. Returns the number of characters inserted.

Function: int rl_delete_text (int start, int end)

Delete the text between start and end in the current line. Returns the number of characters deleted.

Function: char * rl_copy_text (int start, int end)

Return a copy of the text between start and end in the current line.

Function: int rl_kill_text (int start, int end)

Copy the text between start and end in the current line to the kill ring, appending or prepending to the last kill if the last command was a kill command. The text is deleted. If start is less than end, the text is appended, otherwise prepended. If the last command was not a kill, a new kill ring slot is used.

Function: int rl_push_macro_input (char *macro)

Cause macro to be inserted into the line, as if it had been invoked by a key bound to a macro. Not especially useful; use rl_insert_text() instead.
