Unhappy C routine "readline" missing in CentOS 6.4


"readline" is a C library routine that allows command line editing
as in bash shell.
I was hapily using the readline package in CentOS 5.1 then
when I upgraded to 6.4 in went away. In 5.1 the headers
#include <readline/readline.h> and #include <readline/history.h
were there but not in 6.4. I installed the "readline" package but
that did not fix it. Any suggestions?

Don't you need the readline-devel RPM package for compiling with readline support? (No idea if there's one for CentOS-6: else try converting readline-devel-6.2-5.fc18.%{arch}.rpm ?)
