in reply to Modules for console applications

first of all I'd like to point out that using "just Curses" ain't too bad because it is very well documented: all docs come as manpages with the distribution. OK, this is the C API but man Curses (which is the perl documentation) tells you how to read them for perl.

Then you might be interested in reading the sources of vshnu which is written in perl and uses Term::Screen for the display. Or take a look at this and this thread.

I've been into curses in C/C++ in the last weeks and besides the usual C-preprocesser screws and the fact that not all terminals work as well as good ol' xterm it's been easy and fun.

you begin bashing the string with a +42 regexp of confusion

Slang alternative

    I think you should also give a look to Term::Slang.
    The Slang library is supposed to be easier to use and more portable than (n)curses.
    perl -l -e "eval pack('h*','072796e647028222d2d202a0e49636f6c61637022292b3');"

[Lady_Aleena]: erix, right, it searches files for a pattern. pcregrep is supposed to do the same thing with the addition of being able to search multiline.
[erix]: ah, pcregrep is a stanalone program?
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, yes.
[Lady_Aleena]: pcre stands for 'Perl Compatible Regular Expressions'.
[erix]: ok, ok, I thought you meant the engine
[perldigious]: Tanktalus: Ha, understandable, that does make it harder when you don't want to move. I assume you are looking at remote work from home jobs too?
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I'm looking at a lot of remote work - I've been working from home since 2002, so I know how to do the work from remote, I just need a new employer ;)
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, I wouldn't know how to get a script to do what the greps do in one line.
[perldigious]: Even working for a large software engineering contractor that's willing to do remote could be an option. The fortune 500 company at $job-- I worked for had quite a lot of that work to hire out to large contractors.
[perldigious]: The pay and benifits leave a lot to be desired though, or so I've heard...
