17. Individual Character Input (Addendum)
[Disagreement with ANS]
- A char-input-reply can be an other-character. End-of-line in a char-input-reply is not defined. CR and LF are treated as two other-characters.
- Pending characters shall be erased when a chain-statement is executed.
Character echoing is available only for the keystrokes.
- There are no typeahead buffers for INPUT and LINE INPUT.
SET ECHO is valid for INPUT and LINE INPUT.
An other-character is defined as a byte.
If an end-of-file occur during the execution of a char-input statement, an exception with extype 7305 shall be raised.
