tread is called as a method then the prompt string is taken from STDIN. Otherwise the prompt string will be the first parameter. However if no prompt string is given then
tread will not write a prompt.
The last parameter will be the variable name to store the string read by
tread. This variable cannot be prefixed by dollar,
$, otherwise the shell will write the output of that variable as the last parameter rather than the name of the variable.
