[Nikto-discuss] Disabling interactive question

I know, however, it is a bit impractical to have to check if this is present, especially as I don't know where the configuration file will be in the system. Is there a command line option to disable it?

The following will do the trick, but feels like cheating:
echo y | nikto .....

There is an option in the nikto.conf to not ask the user if they want to send updates to cirt.net
