This is quite contradictory. If you want it with user interaction you wouldn't pass it through a script. Please be more specific what exactly you want to achieve.

my suggestion in your other thread was to look into expect. i've never had to use it before since most of my scripts are non-interactive but it mite help you.

there needs to be a space between $var and ].

also please post code in code tags to make it easier to read.
