NAME

prompt - give any program command-line editing facilities  

SYNOPSIS

prompt  

DESCRIPTION

prompt is a simple wrapper which provides command-line editing for programs that do not have it.

Not all programs with a command line interface provide an input history or even the ability to use the cursor keys to change the input. The prompt program wraps any program, intercepting stdin, stdout and stderr and providing the user with such editing facilities.
