CBREAK: Turns CBREAK mode on and off to allow Lisp to read
the input character by character.
Most UNIX-based Lisp implementations buffer the input until a
carriage return is seen. This means that functions like
READ-CHAR, LISTEN and READ-CHAR-NO-HANG don't work as the
programmer might expect. For example to reply to Y-OR-N-P, one not
only has to type a Y or N, but hit the return key as well.
This package contains example code that shows how to turn CBREAK
mode on and off from within Lisp.
