Module Readline

module Readline: sig .. end
Interactive line editing.

This implements very basic readline abilities: backspace, left and right arrows work as expected. There's also a history that can be browsed through the up and down arrows.

type completer = left:string -> right:string -> string list 
module History: sig .. end
A mutable variable representing the history.
val input_line : ?history:History.t ->
?prompt:string ->
?text:string -> ?tab_completion:completer -> unit -> string option
Returns None on EOF (i.e. the user typed ctrl + d)
history : the mutable value used as a history. The deault value is History.default. If you don't want any history ou should use History.null
prompt : the string to use as a prompt (default value ">")
tab_completion : the function use to complete on tab. By default there is no completion.
val input_line_eof : ?history:History.t ->
?prompt:string ->
?text:string -> ?tab_completion:completer -> unit -> string
val password : ?prompt:string -> unit -> string option

Returns None on EOF
val confirm : ?prompt:string -> string -> bool
