I think it isn't easily possible.  Readline really wants a tty, but this
is just a plain socket connection.

I really think you are better off just implementing a console in your
GUI, and doing the various editing things there.

Tom> History you can implement in your UI.

Marc> Guess so :-(

Actually, I guess interoperating with gdb's history would be nice.  It
would mean that users could "set history save on" and then have their
commands show up in Eclipse as well.

I think this would need some new MI commands.  Specifically, you'd need
an MI request to fetch previous history items.

If you want this, would you mind filing a bug report?

Another bug report :)

Ok, I see.  We've added some events in this last release cycle.
Please file bugs for what you need.  These are usually not too hard to
