Ksh style select menus in perlby Anonymous Monk
|on Aug 01, 2002 at 20:00 UTC||Need Help??|
Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
As a recent convert to Perl from Ksh, I am looking for a
convenient equivalent to Ksh's "select" built-in.
Here's how David Korn describes "select" in his book:
The items in "word ..." are displayed on stderr, each
preceeded by a number. The user is prompted to make a
choice. This is extremely handy for simple option selection
in scripts that need to interact with people.
Does Perl (or CPAN) have something equivalent?
