Out of curiosity, have you considered basing Ask::STDIO on IO::Prompt::Tiny? (...or on IO::Prompt::Hooked -- shameless plug.) That way even if there's no live terminal input can still be received via sane defaults.

You may already have thought of it, and I don't know that those modules would be a good fit, but just asking. :)

    I'm not sure that makes much sense. The point of Ask::STDIO is to interact with a live terminal. If the process isn't running on a live terminal (-t STDIN and -t STDOUT), Ask shouldn't even attempt to load Ask::STDIO.

    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
