Line 1: Line 1:
 +======Synopsis:​======
 +[[on]] [<​modes>​]exec_prompt [<​serial#>​] [-|^]<​match>​ { <​action>​ }
 +
 +======Description:​======
 +This hook is triggered whenever an [[exec command|EXEC]]ed process displays a "​prompt"​.
 +More precisely, it is triggered when the process returns any line of
 +output that is not terminated by a newline. ​ This is generally the case
 +with interactive commands, such as nslookup(1).
 +
 +======Parameters:​======
 +|$0   ​|process number of name of the [[exec command|EXEC]]ed process ​         |
 +|$1   ​|prompt string to look for                                              |
 +
 +======Default behavior:​======
 +If you do not suppress this event, the client will format the message
 +and display it to your screen **UNLESS** you are redirecting the output
 +of that [[exec]] to somewhere else.
 +
 +======Examples:​======
 +To hook the prompt when using nslookup interactively:​
 +   on ^exec_prompt "% >" {
 +      assign foo $0
 +      input "​nslookup>​ " {
 +         msg %${foo} $*
 +      }
 +   }
