Prompt for arguments

!ASK - Prompt for options and arguments

A ( !ASK) has been added to make it easier to specify command line options in Windows Explorer. One of the options available when right clicking a .as file, invokes ASReml with this option. ASReml then prompts for the options and arguments, allowing these to be set interactively at run time. With !ASK on the top job control line, it is assumed that no other qualifiers are set on the line. For example, a response of
     -h22r 1 2 3      would be equivalent to
     ASReml -h22r basename 1 2 3
