commandline history implemented as a plugin for the python event-manager. Supports simple searching but not saving nor multi-stage-bindings. Possibly more up to date version can be found at git:// branch “history”.

example bindings:

@bind <Up>                 = request HISTORY_PREV
@bind <Down>               = request HISTORY_NEXT
@bind <Ctrl>p              = request HISTORY_PREV
@bind <Ctrl>n              = request HISTORY_NEXT
@bind <Ctrl>r  <search:>_  = request HISTORY_SEARCH %s

__export__ = ['get_history']
UZBLS = {}
