  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
 
  interactive 
 
    A  term  describing  a  program  whose  input  and 
  output  are  interleaved,  like  a  conversation,  allowing  the 
  user's  input  to  depend  on  earlier  output  from  the  same  run. 
 
  The  interaction  with  the  user  is  usually  conducted  through 
  either  a  text-based  interface  or  a  {graphical  user  interface}. 
  Other  kinds  of  interface,  e.g.  using  {speech  recognition} 
  and/or  {speech  synthesis},  are  also  possible. 
 
  This  is  in  contrast  to  {batch}  processing  where  all  the  input 
  is  prepared  before  the  program  runs  and  so  cannot  depend  on 
  the  program's  output.
