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

Dear monks,

I am looking for a PERL module, which would help me to quickly build a front end allowing manipulation of configuration file(s).

Has any of you seen something like this done?

Preferrably using modules which are available for ActiveState PERL (Windows).

Thank you very much for your time and any pointers.

Regards, Jan

    UPDATE - it seems that NCurses were not yet ported on Windows, so I am probably out of luck, and this question is therefore answered.

    Sorry for cluttering this forum.

      Tk does work on Windows, last I checked (ca. 2002), though.
        Thanks for the tip!

    You should consider using Dancer or Mojo. They even work on low quality OS's like Windows, much to the chagrin of Microsoft who put their eggs in the broadband basket and have never caught up.
      Thanks for the tip, however this seems to be a a bit of a stretch on a data warehousing project :)
