How can this done?


how can one ask for input from REPL (STDIN), waiting for some time then return any way if there is no input??


I answered a similar question here:


Dear @adamslc
i ask for a some how different thing.
if there is no input (a user to interact) after some time. return with a default value then.


Instead of asking for input, just write functions for the user to call and pass in arguments.


@dpsanders i want a default behavior in absence of a user who supposed to input to REPL.


In what kind of application or context?


during receiving input from REPL.


If you’re receiving input from the repl, then there must be a user controlling everything, no?


i want to give the user a time frame to respond else a default will apply.
