description

   This program replaces the Unix yes program, which does not exist
under the Solaris operating system.  The program produces an infinite
number of y's to supply the rm program while doing:

    rm *

which would ask for conformation of every name when rm is aliased to
'rm -i'.

    yes | rm *

avoids that.
