FYI:

I've been using a CVS pull from the middle of May with readline under
Win32 without any problems. Firing up the database and doing a 'show
all' shows all lc_* vars set to English_United Kingdom.1252. This was
compiled using MingW-3.1.0-1 and MSYS-1.0.10, running under Windows XP
Pro. The only issues I have found with testing are that the history is
not maintained between psql sessions, and completion doesn't work with
\i when using a backslash (\) as a separator or when including a drive
specifier.


Hope this helps,

Mark.
