(It was a real kludge.) However, after thinking about it more I decided that expansion really belongs in readline/editline. So I modified readline v2.1 to support it. I then had to make a relatively minor change to rc to initialize readline properly and to perform expansion. [Caveat: I decided not to use ~ because of its obvious conflict with pattern matching in rc. Instead I used % which seems to be free. It would have been better if the final expansion was done in readline, but it appeared that readline would be too easy to break.] The modification works fine. I have to remember to use ~ instead of % in emacs though! The patch is too long to post and is of (perhaps) limited interest so I will email it to you directly. Mark -- Mark K.
