There appears to be more than one (!)
There's one on http://sourceforge.net/projects/libedit/, and one on
http://www.thrysoee.dk/editline/ at least. And
The second one supports cygwin, but not mingw. The first one I have no
idea, but it has made no release since 2001 so it doesn't seem very
active, whereas the second one made a release in oct 2005. I think the
second one is the one the guy in the blog post I sent before was
referring to, but I'm not sure.
