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.

SEE ALSO

       modglue(1).  ptywrap(1).
