prompt(): make it better reusable. Read description.

prompt():

  This function was only used to output text in a formatted way, which misses
  the potential of the function. Now, the function takes the prompt as the first
  argument, reads the input, and echoes it back so it can be called from
  variable declarations.

prompt_noecho():

  This function was added to ask for secret user input, making use of the actual
  prompt function.
