in thread Escape characters and arrow keys and pp

actually it does not work very well. \W means match non-word character, opposite of \w. See http://perldoc.perl.org/perlre.html. You may want to look at http://search.cpan.org/~jstowe/TermReadKey-2.30/ReadKey.pm too. There may be other models on CPAN that may do what you are looking for. So search CPAN. Or most likely another monk will have the right answer.
