( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Can't really help you about tab completion. You could read in the keypresses chararcter by character and write your own parser. But i guess this should already be a solved problem.

A workaround would be to use Term::Readline. You could - for example - prepolulate the history. Something like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Term::ReadLine; my $term = Term::ReadLine->new('Tabtest'); my $prompt = "Test your tabs, guv: "; if ($^O eq "MSWin32" || $^O eq "dos") { my $INPUT; open($INPUT, "<con") and $term->newTTY($INPUT, $term->OUT); } foreach my $command (qw[print hello echo foo bar baz]) { $term->addhistory($command); } while(defined(my $line = $term->readline($prompt))) { chomp $line; exit if($line eq "exit"); print "I don't know how to '$line'\n"; $term->addhistory($line); }

Not quite what you wanted, i know, but i'm also fresh out of ideas.

Don't use '#ff0000':
use Acme::AutoColor; my $redcolor = RED();
All colors subject to change without notice.
