    Yea, using Term::ReadKey would definitely be a better way to go; and while searching, I came across it. However, I was trying to write this script such that it would run with the base Perl install (no extra modules). It will end up running on various machines being run by various users with and without necessary skill-sets. Basically, I do not want to rely on a user and/or computer having or obtaining the module.

    But, if it comes down to it. I will do it that way. (Or, I will just say, press the "Enter" key to continue.) But, who wants to be simple. The fact that I cannot do it is what is drving me crazy. Thanks, though.
