Works here. Are you hitting Enter to finish the line input? Otherwise use sysread.

    same problem sysread doesn't solve. It seems a matter of not blocking can_read. Did you manage to have it working?

      It works on Linux, it doesn't on Windows XP. Do you know why? thank you

        Because cmd.exe is not bash, or csh, or ..... there is a reason abstractions such as Curses/Term::Readline::Gnu were invented
