I am a little uncertain as what you mean.

If I use 'prompt' in the Makefile.PL, how can the test scripts get this information.

I am having a similar requirement as the OP, in that I need username and password to test. I do not want to use an environment variable for the password (although it is a development database, the DBA is very strict about keeping even those passwords very secure).

    Yes, as I said I initially slightly misread the question and hence the reference to Makefile.PL. You can use ExtUtils::MakeMaker->prompt in your test scripts too.

    $ perl -MExtUtils::MakeMaker -le 'print ExtUtils::MakeMaker::prompt("f +red", "default");' fred [default] # I just hit CR here default
