ckkeywd(1)				  User Commands 			       ckkeywd(1)

       ckkeywd - prompts for and validates a keyword

       ckkeywd [-Q] [-W width] [-d default] [-h help] [-e error]
	    [-p prompt] [-k pid [-s signal]] keyword [...]

       ckkeywd	prompts  a  user  and  validates  the response. It defines, among other things, a
       prompt message whose response should be one  of a list of  keywords,  text  for	help  and
       error  messages,  and  a default value (which will be returned if the user responds with a
       carriage return).  The answer returned from this command must match  one  of  the  defined
       list of keywords.

       All  messages  are limited in length to 70 characters and are formatted automatically. Any
       white space used in the definition (including newline) is stripped.  The -W option cancels
       the automatic formatting. When a tilde is placed at the beginning or end of a message def-
       inition, the default text will be inserted at that point, allowing both	custom	text  and
       the default text to be displayed.

       If the prompt, help or error message is not defined, the default message (as defined under
       NOTES) will be displayed.

       The following options are supported:

       -d default    Defines the default value as default. The default is not  validated  and  so
		     does not have to meet any criteria.

       -e error      Defines the error message as  error.

       -h help	     Defines the help messages as  help.

       -k pid	     Specifies that process  ID pid is to be sent a signal if the user chooses to

       -p prompt     Defines the prompt message as prompt.

       -Q	     Specifies that quit will not be allowed as a valid response.

       -s signal     Specifies that the process  ID pid defined with the -k option is to be  sent
		     signal   signal  when  quit is chosen. If no signal is specified, SIGTERM is

       -W width      Specifies that prompt, help and error messages will be formatted to  a  line
		     length of width.

       The following operand is supported:

       keyword	  Defines the keyword, or list of keywords, against which the answer will be ver-

       The following exit values are returned:

       0    Successful execution.

       1    EOF on input, or negative width on -W option, or no keywords from which to choose, or
	    usage error.

       3    User termination (quit).
