This library provides a console similar to the consoles in Quake and other
games but with lots of added features.
A console is meant to be a very simple way of interacting with a program
and executing commands. Commands are linked to the console with callback
functions so that when a command is typed in, a specific function is
executed automatically.
This package contains the runtime library.

* NMU.
* Moved the .so symlink to the -dev package (Closes: #190291).
* Added -fpic to the shared objects compilation rule.
* Fixed a quoted-printable "=3D" in that should have been an "="
and a few other typos that were causing the shared library to be empty.

compiled properly.
* Set dependency in shlib file to (>= 1.3-2.2) because all previous versions
were utterly broken (Closes: #194054).

be executable.
