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.
