Linux Rescue script question, in rescue mode


Hi I wrote a resue script that will read input from user in rescue mode, the problem is

if I use "read ANY" to read it will not be compatiable for backspace, simply backspace does not work. But after I replace "read ANY" with "read -e ANY" backspace seems to be working but the cursor becomes in the first line of the sentence, meaning overwriting the prompt statement. how do i read a choice from user when I display a menu, that will not affect back space issue and the cursor issue that I have.

regards,
Vijay

No, you shouldn't do that. Use your other thread.
