#10964 closed defect (fixed)

python24 ignores --without-readline and has readline capability in it

Description

On my recent Python 2.4.3 builds, I noticed that I had readline functionality in the python shell. It turns out that the package has the readline.so in it, in spite of the --without-readline configure argument.

$ /opt/local/bin/port contents python24 | grep readline
  /opt/local/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload/readline.so

So right now, there's not much point to the py-readline module, since python24 has it.

Regards, Blair

Just checked python25 and the same goes for that. But in that case, we don't have a py-readline for 2.5, so keeping it would be nice.

readline disabled as a built-in module in r42379 (since it causes crashing, see #13238).
