Are you sure about that? Its cold outside, how will you keep warm?

use strict/warnings to cut your development time in half! strict and warnings have also been called "training wheels" but they're more like "sanity checks" or seatbelts , professionals use them long after they've learned to ride a bike

See Re: DBD::mysql trouble

See ExtUtils::MakeMaker::prompt, you could write

use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw' prompt '; ... if( prompt('Are you new?', 'n') =~ /y/ ){ my $username = prompt('Your name is?','John Smith'); $username =~ s/\s+$//; ... } else { my $username = prompt('Who are you','John Smith'); $username =~ s/\s+$//; ... }

Or even

if( prompt('Are you new?', 'n') =~ /y/ ){ CreateNewUser(); } else { ActivateOldUser(); }

where CreateNewUser and ActivateOldUser do all that prompt/DBI stuff from before
