bk prompt(7.3.3)	    BitKeeper User's Manual	      bk prompt(7.3.3)

NAME
       bk prompt - prompt a user with a	message

SYNOPSIS
       bk prompt [opts]	[message]

DESCRIPTION
       bk  prompt  is  used to prompt a	user with a message, get a positive or
       negative	response, and exit accordingly.

       This interface may be used for either command line or  graphical	 envi-
       ronments.

       If  the	environment variable BK_GUI is set, then the graphical version
       will be used instead of the command line	version.  All of the BitKeeper
       GUI  tools  set	this  variable	automatically such that	any call to bk
       prompt from inside the graphical	 tools	will  result  in  a  graphical
       prompt, including the execution of any user supplied triggers.

       If the environment variable BK_MSG_GEOM is set, the graphical tool will
       use the value of	this variable to locate	itself	on  the	 screen.   The
       format  of  the	variable  must	be  in the form	+x+y where x and y are
       screen coordinates.  bk citool sets this	 variable  automatically  such
       that the	prompt will be at the same x/y location	as the upper left cor-
       ner of citool.

OPTIONS
       -c      Only for	command	line prompts, print the	message	and exit 0.
       -e      Indicates that the prompt is an error message.
       -ffile  Specifies the file contain the message to be displayed.	Unless
	       this  option or the -p option is	present, the last command line
	       argument	must be	present	and is used as the message.
       -g      Override	the BK_GUI variable and	force a	command	line prompt if
	       called in a graphical context.
       -i      Indicates that the prompt is an informational message.
       -nno    If  set,	 specifies  the	message	for the	label in the graphical
	       tool which is to	be used	if the user does not  agree.   Default
	       is "NO".	 Not used in command line context.
       -o      OK  only,  clears  the default "NO" value.  Not used in command
	       line context.
       -pprog  If set, specifies a program which, when run, will  produce  the
	       message contents.
       -ttitle If  set,	specifies the title of the graphical tool.  Default is
	       "BitKeeper Message".  Not used in command line context.
       -yyes   If set, specifies the message for the label  in	the  graphical
	       tool,  or  the  prompt in the command line tool,	which is to be
	       used if the user	does agree.  Default is	"OK".
       -w      Indicates that the prompt is a warning message.

EXIT STATUS
       bk prompt returns exit status:

       0   if the user said yes
       1   if the user said no
