Thanks for advice. Of cource it is possible, however, I don't think
it is necessary. IMHO, the buffer size of 2048 is more than enough
for console keyboard input. Even if the number of records exceeds
2048, call of process_input_message() will be divided into several
transactions without loss of data. Previously, process_input_message()
was called byte by byte, so the current implementation is much better
than that even with the buffer whose depth is 2048.
