 Ah yes this is a problem on Windows.

 linenoise. And reverting to fgets() feels a bit primitive. However, the
 newer mingw-w64/msys2 has a port of readline which is also used by gdb et

 Is this a mingw package of readline? We cannot use msys2 packages.

 I am fine with a probe for readline and if not present the interface is
 very basic. I have tended to use `sis` with `gdb` and so I have not used
 used the command line.
