 Log Message:
 Update to 0.37; closes PR 46078.
 Now depends on perl.
 0.37  Commands that emit "status lines" using backspaces and carriage
       returns could confuse rlwrap
       rlwrap uses C strings internally, and thus cannot cope with
       command output that contains zero bytes (padding). It used to
       replace these with spaces, now the zero bytes are removed.
       if the RLWRAP_HOME is set, but $RLWRAP_HOME doesn't exist, rlwrap
       will create it
       typo: SIGERR instead of SIG_ERR in signals.c
 0.36  Entering a line from vi command mode would echo the input twice
       Output from very busy commands would not always be printed on time
       When rlwrap kills itself after a command crash it will not dump
       core, in order to avoid clobbering command's much more interesting
       core dump.
       Premature filter death is now reported properly (it used to only
       say: "EOF reading from filter" or "Broken pipe writing to filter")
 0.35  config.{guess,sub} have been updated to version 2009-12-13
       Corrected array bounds error in my_putstr("") (which could make
       rlwrap write an extra newline when exiting, but might even crash
       on some systems)
       Many small improvements and fixes for multi-line input:
         Multi-line inputs are now written to the inferior command one
         line at a time, so that command's response (e.g. a continuation
         prompt) can be interleaved with the echo'ed (multi-line) input.
         Calling an external editor will no longer obliterate the prompt,
         and line/column positions are now correct.
         After a multi-line edit in vi-mode, the cursor will no longer
         end up one line too high.
       CTRL-D on an empty line was handed directly to command, but also
       (erroneously) put in readline's input buffer
       Many small fixes and improvements in signal handling:
          SIGSEGV, and other "error" signals like SIGFPE, are now unblocked
          all of the time, so that rlwrap can always clean up after a crash.
          Since version 0.25 rlrwap's transparency extends to signals: if
          the inferior command segfaults, rlwrap will kill itself with a
          SIGSEGV. In order to get the bug reports where they belong,
          rlwrap now reports explicitly that it has not crashed itself.
          rlwrap's call to sigaction forgot to set the signal mask (!)
          Continuing after CTRL-Z on QNX now wakes up command
       Added --one-shot (-o) and --only-cook (-O) options
       debug log is now in a format that works well with emacs' grep-mode
       rlwrap's bindable readline function names (like rlwrap-call-editor) are
       now in hyphen-style instead of underscore_style (use of the
       old_style_names will now be flagged as an error)
       Filters can now prevent a prompt from being cooked by "rejecting" it. would set $_ incorrectly in echo and output handlers. manpage is now created by newer (and less buggy)
       version of pod2man
       Added EXAMPLES section and -t option to rlwrap manpage
 0.34  Binding wide (e.g. utf-8) chars in .inputrc now works
       prefix arguments are now correctly reset (M-5 a b now
       yields aaaaab instead of aaaaabbbbb)
 0.33  rlwrap incorrectly fed terminfo-style capnames ("dl1") instead of
       termcap codes ("dl") into tgetstr(). On newer Debian systems this
       exposed a bug where random garbage would be printed by rlwrap
       Hyphens in rlwrap manpage are now all properly escaped now only re-sets $filter->cumulative_output when an
       INPUT message is received
 0.32  Major new feature: filtering. Filters sit between rlwrap and the
       wrapped command, re-writing command output, input, prompts,
       history, and completion word lists.
       System-wide filters live in DATADIR/rlwrap/filters (where DATADIR =
       /usr/local/share by default, installation-dependent) Because of this,
       completions now live in DATADIR/rlwrap/completions (until now:
       To make filter writing easy, a perl module has
       been added. It doesn't become part of your perl installation, but lives
       in DATADIR/rlwrap/filters
       rlwrap didn't properly check errno after reading from inferior pty.
       This could lead to a spurious "read error on master pty"
       Instead of using crusty old signal(), signal handlers are now set
       by sigaction() without SA_RESTART (BSD semantics) Different
       syscall-restarting behaviour among systems caused hard-to-trace
       Now copies inferior pty's c_oflags to stdout before
       output. (some editors like joe would mess up the screen)
       prompt handling logic has been streamlined. Coloured prompt handling is
       reliable now, even for long prompts.
       At program exit, rlwrap now outputs a newline only when the client
       Added -g, -I, -N, -S, -w and -z options
       Removed -F option (and added a filter to replace it)
       -p option now takes colour names (-pYellow)
       rlwrap (and readline) uses C strings internally, which could cause 
       with commands that output '\0' bytes. In direct mode, such
       characters are left untouched, but in readline mode they are
       replaced by spaces.
       the tools directory has been updated, so that configure will
       feel at home even on newer systems
       tested on SunOS, AIX, FreeBSD, HP/UX, QNX (thanks to, as
       well as cygwin and linux
