why isn't history.h installed?
Hello, the problem is simple: PostgreSQL uses autoconf and it finds
libreadline. Unfortunatelly, because no history.h is installed in
OpenBSD, it does not compile history stuff into psql interactive tool
which is _very_ uncomfortable.
One time I used to tweak PostgreSQL's header files to compile it with
history anyway, but has been pointed that it is not the way it should
be done. I have been thinking the history stuff is defined somewhere
in /usr/include/readline/*.h, but it is not. AFAIK, OpenBSD's readline
is GNU readline which comes with GNU binutils. And there is hsitory.h
What is the reason for history.h being not installed?
