User prompting

About this task

When you use wildcard characters to select the objects to be acted upon by a command, conman prompts for confirmation after finding each matching object. Responding with yes allows the action to be taken, and no skips the object without taking the action.

When you run conman interactively, the confirmation prompts are issued at your computer. Pressing the Return key in response to a prompt is interpreted as a no response. Prompting can be disabled by including the ;noask option in a command.

Although no confirmation prompts are issued when conman is not running in interactive mode, it acts as though the response had been no in each case, and no objects are acted on. It is important, therefore, to include the ;noask option on commands when conman is not run in interactive mode.
