I mean, editing a single line of text is a problem? Really? Can someone explain why?
Sure. It's easy: because this book weights over five pounds (2kg)...
Editing of a single line of US-ASCII text is easy and libedit does it acceptably well. But when you go beyond that... some characters take two positions on screen, some don't take anything at all, etc. Readline does not do it all that well, but in comparison to libedit... well, it's not so simple to edit a single line of text, believe me...
