## The first thing we do is to convert the user's prompt.  Normally, we would
## do a '' as the first command in the for () loop so we could detect errors
## that bash might emit on startup.  In this case, we need to do this
## initialization first so that we have a prompt to look for so we know that
## it's ready to accept input.  This is all because the startup scripts
## that bash runs set PS1, and we can't have that.
$in = "PS1='<PROMPT> '\n" ;

## bash prompts on stderr.  Consume everything before the first
## <PROMPT> (which is the second prompt bash issues).
