Hello,
for my project confux (http://confux.sourceforge.net) I want to read
a line from stdin.
But I don't want the user to type a new line. I want so display a
value which the user can edit.

For example I want to ask the user for a hostname and I print
"localhost", the user modified it to "localserver" and I read it
after <return>.

What is the fastest way to realize that? I do NOT want to use curses
(yet) ;-).

mfg
- eth
