I have an Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. And XAMPP for linux 1.7.7.
When I code in php with and call the readline function I get this error message? "Fatal error: Call to undefined function readline()"
I recently found the below thread which pointed out the name of the package that contained the desired readline: How to solve configure: error: readline library not found?
I went ahead and installed # apt-get install libreadline6. But this didnt seem to make a difference. I still get the same error message: "Fatal error: Call to undefined function readline()". Was the thread missing further steps? Can anyone help me?
I am new to Ubuntu.
<?php echo "Simple menu \n" ; echo "1. Play Sports \n"; echo "2. Play Strategy games \n"; $userInput = readline('Enter something here: '); ?>
