The readline package
The software uses the readline package to provide very useful tools available, including CTRL-p for previous line, tab completion, etc.
To compile atlas with readline you need the development version of readline. To install this under Debian-based systems (including Ubuntu), do
sudo apt-get install libreadline-dev
On redhat-like systems do
sudo yum install libreadline-dev
This line in the makefile tells the software where to find the readline library:
rlincludes = -lreadline -lcurses
On some systems it is necessary to replace -lcurses with -lncurses.
If all else fails you can compile readline using:
