in reply to Handle Ctrl-C on Windows

I don't get that warning on linux, so can't test, but the problem seems to be that the chomp is executed even after you pressed ctrl-C. Did you try to move the chomp on a line by itself or add a noop inbetween so that there is another statement to break on?

my $choice = <>; chomp($choice); #or even my $choice = <>; $choice=$choice; chomp($choice);
