variable[, variable, variable, …]= conrd;

One or more variables are read from the console. The natural output from conrd is text, if inputting numbers is required, then the val() function should be used additionally in the form val(conrd).

The total length of the line read at once could be up to 255 characters long.

Reading is terminated by receiving an ASCII code 10 (LF). The terminating code is not passed on to the output.

Note that “conrd()” is a blocking function. This means that whenever it needs to be executed, ALL parallel processes stop until the function produces its result.
