Description:The attached patch is an initial (and non-complete) readline support for the CLI: replaces the editline library (only disabled in this patch).

While the original motivation is to avoid potential licensing issues of editline, I'd also like to make it possible to pipe commands to the CLI frm the standard input.

At the moment this patch is very partial: it provides a local and remote CLI, but the remote CLI will not print any output. Completion is not implemented either. However commands can be piped from the standard input in an 'asterisk -r' remote console.

Asterisk intentionally eliminated readline because of licensing issues and went with editline, as it is BSD licensed.  I'm afraid this patch is quite simply, a non-starter.  Closed.
