#18524 closed enhancement (duplicate)

python25 Enhancement - Add a readline variant

Reported by: spreng@… Owned by: mww@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.7.0
Keywords: Cc:
Port: python25


I've modified the python25 Portfile to add a readline variant which enables command history and tab completion for the python shell.

It would probably be a good idea to set this variant as default unless you have a reason not to do so (I don't know why readline was disabled until now), but that's not part of this patch.

PS: Such a patch would probably also be applicable to all the other python variants. PPS: This is my first patch to a Portfile so far, please tell me if I have done any mistakes.

Having python25 depend on py25-readline, when py25-readline already depends on python25, is a really bad idea (circular dependencies). Also, simply installing py25-readline after python25 is simpler than reinstalling python25 with new variants.

The general issue of these split-out modules is ticket #12369, dup'ing to that.
