READCONS(1)                                           READCONS(1)

     NAME
          readcons - prompt console for input

     SYNOPSIS
          readcons [ -d default ] [ -s ] prompt

     DESCRIPTION
          Readcons prompts at the console for input, copying the typed
          string to standard output.  If the -s flag is given, the
          input is not displayed (secret).  If the user types an empty
          string (just a newline) and the -d option is given, then
          default is printed instead of an empty string.
