/* getline is a more flexible, display-independent readline library. It
 * ties in with the dynstr library in order to provide command-line editing
 * on lines of arbitrary length. It calls no display or output functions,
 * acting solely as a back-end.
 *
 * There is only one important user-visible function: gl_handle_keystroke. Call
 * it whenever you've read an input keystroke. gl_handle_keystroke takes a
 * pointer to the current string, a prefix length (see below), an integer
 * cursor (0-based), and a chtype value representing the keystroke. It returns
 * the updated cursor, or, if the user typed a key bound to glf_done (most
 * likely ENTER), returns GL_DONE to indicate that the input is complete,
 * or GL_ABORT to indicate that the input was aborted.
 *
 * If a non-0 prefix length, L, is specified, the user will not be able to
 * edit or cursor over the first L characters of the given string.
 *
 * This library includes ncurses.h to provide chtype, but does not otherwise
 * depend on ncurses.
 *
 * Default keybindings are defined in the array gl_keybindings. They may be
 * user configurable in the future; for now, you'll have to edit getline.c
 * directly.
 *
 * getline keeps an input history, much like readline, retaining up to
 * GL_HISTORY_MAXLEN-1 past inputs. However, note that only one history
 * record is kept for all calls to gl_handle_keystroke in a program.
