some work around using Term::Readkey

It may help for your requirement

#! /usr/bin/perl use Term::ReadKey; ReadMode 4; # Turn off controls keys open(FH,'>',"file"); $|=1; ## To read 10 characters and write into the file $i=0; ## for reading 10 characters.... while ( $i<10) { until (defined ($key = ReadKey(-1))) {} print FH "$key\n"; $i++; } close FH; ReadMode 0; # Reset tty mode before exiting
