Here is some stupid example code that doesn't do anything useful, but should give you an idea of how such a dispatch table and a state automaton might work:
use strict; use warnings; my %states = ( main => { next => [ qw(intermediate end) ], on_enter => sub { print "You entered state main\n" }, }, intermediate => { next => [ qw(intermediate end) ], on_enter => sub { print "stupid side effect\n"; }, }, end => { next => [], on_enter => sub { print "Never called\n" }, }, ); my $current = $states{main}; while (@{$current->{next}}){ $current->{on_enter}->(); print "You can go to the following states from here:\n"; for (@{$current->{next}}){ print "\t$_\n"; } my $next = <STDIN>; chomp $next; if ($states{$next}){ # go to the next state: # TODO: check that this state transition is allowed $current = $states{$next}; } else { print "Sorry, don't understand your input, try again please\n" +; } }
