in reply to do until loop breaks before meeting the condition

Avoid the issue. Use a prompt module.
use strict; use warnings; use IO::Prompt::Hooked; my %opt = ( message => "Enter text (1-255 characters) to send to clients: ", validate => qr/^.{1,255}$/, error => "You have exceeded the limit of 1-255 characters - Try + again\n", escape => qr/^END$/i, ); while ( my $result = prompt(%opt) ) { print ">>$result<<\n" }

    To: BillKSmith,

    Nice, I had no clue about this process. It might also come in handy to other scripts. Thanks for sharing.

    Seeking for Perl wisdom...on the process...not there...yet!
