in reply to Can't exit, except when I press ^C?

You've received two good answers here.

Your code reads a line of text. Then you test to see if the 1st character on that line is a <ctrl-W>.

Perhaps if you fixed the prompt?

    Thanks, I was using octal and not hex. Is there a way to make it read input from outside the script so that I could press <esc> anytime and it would close? Sorry I know I'm like super noobie. Thanks though for your time ^_^
      As the other AM says, look at the Term namespace.

      I tried to find a core solution to you and found  getc, but it's even its documentation points you to the CPAN module Term::ReadKey.

      Looks like now is as good a time as any to learn how to use CPAN (or PPM).

        Okayy thanks! ^_^ I only really know the basics of creating a module and "use <module::function>".
