: How can I have MMA print something like:

		arsize = 10;
		Print["The gridsize is ", arsize];

: I print a bunch of parameters for the current 'run', and would like to 
: prompt myself "If this is OK, press enter to continue but if it's not OK, 
: press any other key to end the program". 
: How can I do this?

	Here is a rudimentary approach :

		Print["The gridsize is ", arsize];
		Print["Type 1 to change arsize"];
		Print["Type 2 to cahnge SomethingElse"];
		Print["Other input keep current values"];

		ans =Input["your choice is "];
		Which[ ans == 1,
				arsize = Input["Enter new value for arsize"],
		       ans == 2,
				SomethingElse = Input["Enter SomethingElse"],
                                Print["Let's continue using arsize =", arsize]
    While, if, Switch are also available.
