8.29  Linedit management

The following predicates are only available if the linedit part of GNU Prolog has been installed.

8.29.1  get_linedit_prompt/1

Templates

get_linedit_prompt(?atom)

Description

get_linedit_prompt(Prompt) succeeds if Prompt is the current linedit prompt, e.g. the top-level prompt is ’| ?-’. By default all other reads have an empty prompt.

Errors

Prompt is neither a variable nor an atom  type_error(atom, Pred)

Portability

GNU Prolog predicate.

8.29.2  set_linedit_prompt/1

Templates

set_linedit_prompt(+atom)

Description

set_linedit_prompt(Prompt) sets the current linedit prompt to Prompt. This prompt will be displayed for reads from a terminal (except for top-level reads).

Errors

Prompt is a variable  instantiation_error
Prompt is neither a variable nor an atom  type_error(atom, Pred)

Portability

GNU Prolog predicate.

8.29.3  add_linedit_completion/1

Templates

add_linedit_completion(+atom)

Description

add_linedit_completion(Word) adds Word in the list of completion words maintained by linedit (section 4.2.6). Only words containing letters, digits and the underscore character are added (if Word does not respect this restriction the predicate fails).

Errors

Word is a variable  instantiation_error
Word is neither a variable nor an atom  type_error(atom, Word)

Portability

GNU Prolog predicate.

8.29.4  find_linedit_completion/2

Templates

find_linedit_completion(+atom, ?atom)

Description

find_linedit_completion(Prefix, Word) succeeds if Word is a word beginning by Prefix and belongs to the list of completion words maintained by linedit (section 4.2.6). This predicate is re-executable on backtracking.

Errors

Prefix is a variable  instantiation_error
Prefix is neither a variable nor an atom  type_error(atom, Prefix)
Word is neither a variable nor an atom  type_error(atom, Word)

Portability

GNU Prolog predicate.
