reada line of input from the user and store as a user defined typed variable
A readline function to allow a line of data inputed from the terminal and then store that as a typed variable.
tread: data-type "prompt" var_name <stdin> -> tread: data-type var_name
tread: qs "Please paste a URL: " url out: "The query string values included were:" $url -> format json out: Please paste a URL: -> tread: qs url out: "The query string values included were:" $url -> format json
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.
