( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am using Term::ReadLine to grab user input and return it, for now. However, I seem to find the need (on cygwin) to press "Enter" twice for a line to "take." Anyway, here is my code sample:
#!/usr/bin/perl use Term::Cap; use Term::ReadKey; use Term::ReadLine; ReadMode 4; $term = new Term::ReadLine 'fakeTerminal'; $prompt = "input: "; @fakeArray = ("The first", "The second", "The third", "The fourth"); for ($i = 0; $i < scalar(@fakeArray); $i++) { print $i+1, ". \t", $fakeArray[$i], "\n"; } while( defined ($_ = $term->readline($prompt))) { if($_){ last if $_ =~ /^\s*quit/i; print $_, "\n"; } } #$key = ReadKey(0); #print "you typed $key\n"; ReadMode 0;
I also have a second question, will using ReadMode 4 with Term::ReadLine still prevent escape attempts using CTRL characters?

If you make something idiot-proof, eventually someone will make a better idiot.
I am that better idiot.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
