Overview
Comment:Worked the low-level output into the ask package as demo of use. Especially made the retry loops visually tighter (temp display of error on bad input, plus reuse of existing line for re-input, no redraw of fixed parts (headers, menu listings)).
Timelines: family | ancestors | descendants | both | say-more
Files: files | file ages | folders

Fix small issue, clear header in a multi-line prompt, this is a fixed part we must not redraw on retry under this new scheme. check-in: defa6f6ead user: andreask tags: say-more
