Hi Monks,

I'm trying to display menu by prompting the user to select one option from the menu. I want to display colored menu and using IO::Prompter module

here is the thing i've tried so far....

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use IO::Prompter; my $animal = prompt 'Select' -style=>'bold red on yellow', -number, -m +enu=>[ 'Cat', 'Dog', 'Tiger' ], ' >'; print $animal;

but this is not working what i expected. any help is appreciated

    Is your syntax correct? I miss a comma after 'Select'. Maybe Perl does too?
