Don't know if this will fit your needs but you might consider an until statement like the following:

use strict; use warnings; $_ = ""; until (/^q/i) { print "What to do: ('o' for options)\n"; chomp ($_ = <STDIN>); if ($_ eq "o") { dboptions() } elsif {$_ eq "r" { readdb() } elsif ..... ..... else {print "Sorry, try again.\n";} } sub dboptions { print <<EOF; Your options are: o - view options r - read .... .... EOF }

Gleaned from Chapter 13, Beginning Perl, page 441.
