PipTigger has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I've tried to use Term::ReadKey to get a single key and I have the latest one installed but I get a segfault everytime I try to ChangeMode... so I found which serves my text character input needs fine... but how does one go about reading special characters like Controls and Alts and Arrow keys etc.? Please help! Thanks. TTFN.
