Announcing very first version of whispering(as you're used to when typing into google) functionality for GNU Bash.
This mi more like community-preview than a real contribution.
Has been tested in xterm and with default .inputrc.
As I am no hardcore C hacker, i beg you for code reviews and criticism.
Also whisper layout tips are welcome...the heart of the matter is how to display
all completitions in somehow limited space.
and of course bug findings:).
There is an aur package created(not conflicting bash) for quick start.
So, go ahead and wash up!
Interesting... This has some potential. I'd like to see some screen(term?)shots.
Nice! Works fine in Kde 4.7.4/ bash 4.2.020-1/ glibc 2.14.1-2 / kernel 3.1.5-1/ konsole/ yakuake/ tty (fbterm+screen) :D I like it, thanks!

This is nice! I really like this idea, enough so that It's earned a temporary place as my default shell!
The only thing I find a bit irritating is that the whisper prompt acts like it's posted to stdout once a command has been issued, which clutters the window a bit. But, i can't think of a fix, and it's a minor niggle anyway.
Thanks a lot for this!

This seems like positive reactions:).
I'll start polishing the code.
Maybe they'll accept it upstream sometime in future.
