                  (OI) Output-to-Input (or Obtain-Input)


     OI - get input into variable


    (OI) Output-to-Input - The concept of Output-to-Input is, for there to
            be input, there must be output from something to grab as input.
            Output-to-Input is a reminder of "Connection".

      (OI) Obtain-Input (same "OI") - Concept of Obtain-Input is to grab
            input and place it as the contents of a variable. A very
            common function but also contained is the data *CLASS* tag of
            the value as *DEFINED* by IP. Also if the amount of input is
            larger than a given amount, a file is created and the contents
            of the variable is the filename. Like PK there is an "OI-file".
            The file contains the list of variables, data *CLASS* tags and
            the values. PK cannot alter the contents of the OI-file, only
            OI can. But PK can change the OI-file used by OI. Generally,
            the active OI-file is located in RAM. OI can by-pass the IP

 "OI" files
variable-pattern ; class-x tag ; value
variable-pattern ;; value


     OI                             returns PK OI line

     OI -?                          help on OI

     OI -oi                         returns current list of vars & values

     OI variable                    gets input from user into variable
                                    value using IP set. if input is
                                    greater than 255 a file is created
                                    and input is to file and value is
                                    set to filename O#I.var where # is
                                    unique (perhaps filedate/time/AI#)

     OI -c var                      cancels variable

     OI -c var value                creates/changes var value
