Subject:Opposite of "interactively" From:mlist -at- safenet-inc -dot- com To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com> Date:Thu, 27 Oct 2005 16:08:52 -0400
It's only Thursday, and I'm experiencing an extended brain-f__t.
For use in computer-related documentation:
If someone has used the term "interactively" to lead off a bullet-point
about a shell that prompts the user for needed info, then what "-ively" word
can I use to lead off the contrasting bullet about the command-line option,
where there are no prompts and you pile all the arguements into the one
Yes, I could re-cast, but the same low blood sugar that's preventing me
finding the word that I want in a thesaurus is making re-casting the
sentences less and less likely... :-)
Dictionary.com and Antonym.com were not helpful.
My Collins Concise didn't have antonyms in the "interactive" entry.
Pffffft! (there's that _noise_ again...)
