console editorby misc (Pilgrim)

misc has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Oh fellow monks!
I'm trying to implement a small editor for encrypted files for my own,
it should be portable (Linux,Win,Dos,..?) and have a console user interface.
I tried Curses::UI first, but it seems hard to me to extend the functionality of e.g. the texteditor
Besides I experienced some bugs in the library and the author/maintainer seems to be unavailable
For sure I could implement something around the limitations,
but that's not the way I like coding.
I've googled around, but so far didn't find something useful, which would be usable from perl
I'm feeling heavily tempted to write my own console ui library..
Implemented in perl, object oriented, will rule the world...
I'd however prefer to use existing code, saving me 5 pounds of coffe, sleep, and some tobacco.
Could perhaps anyone suggest a portable library|module|whatever for a console ui editor, which is also extendable ?
Here's what google told me yet:
