THanks for the info about linenoise. I have been using in
my current project and it work well. Its solves the problem
of porting to small machines.

Would it make sense to eventually use linenoise instead of readline in Lua?

luaconf already has macros for this.
To use linenoise, I expect these should work:

#if defined(LUA_USE_LINENOISE)
#include "linenoise.h"
#define lua_readline(L,b,p)	((void)L, ((b)=linenoise(p)) != NULL)
#define lua_saveline(L,idx) \
	if (lua_strlen(L,idx)>  0)  /* non-empty line? */ \
	  linenoiseHistoryAdd(lua_tostring(L, idx));  /* add it to history */
#define lua_freeline(L,b)	((void)L, free(b))

Or you can just use this emulation of readline:

#define readline	linenoise
#define add_history	linenoiseHistoryAdd

Of course, you need to add linenoise.o to your project.
