In fact, there is already a simple version in the PicoLisp distribution, in "lib/readline.l". It is for pil32. In pil64, 'readline' can be directly called via 'native': (de *Led (native "/lib64/libreadline.so.5" "readline" 'S NIL)) but this has a memory leak iirc. I haven't investigated closely. The problem with both solutions is that they don't integrate as well as "lib/led.l" with the PicoLisp runtime environment (e.g. tab completion on the currently existing internal symbols, locking of the history file), but this can probably be improved upon.
