Printing a prompt and waiting for input

I’m trying to print a prompt, then leave the cursor on the same line for user input. But when I execute println("> ") the cursor moves to the next line. How can I do this?

The “ln” in println indicates the newline.
You can try with only print

print("> ")

I want the newline before the prompt, it’s the newline after the prompt that aI want to suppress.
Thanks for the response.

Thanks for the suggestion. I just tried that and it still goes to the next line after the prompt.

Just using print works, thanks!

You may want to look at Base.prompt:

julia> msg = Base.prompt("Type something");
Type something: Hello!

julia> msg

Thanks for the suggestion.
