In the spirit of TMTOWTDI:

#!/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $choice = 0; my @choices = (undef, "Turkey", "Steak", "Chicken", "Ground Beef", "Ma +shed Potatoes", "Apple Turnover", "Cherry Pie", "Giblet Stuffing", "G +oat Liver", "Goat Cheese", "Head Cheese", "Cheeseburger"); my $num = scalar @choices - 1; print "Choices is $num\n"; while ($choice < 1 or $choice > $num) { print "\nChoose 1 of the $num options:\n"; foreach (1 .. $num) { print "$_ $choices[$_]\n"; } print "\nChoice: "; $choice = <STDIN>; $choice += 0; } print "\nYou choose $choices[$choice].\n";

Updated: Added more options to better match what vivekvp is going to do with it.
Also, this is probably not the best way to do it. It was fun to write though. :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
