in reply to Automate Making Menus

CPAN is your friend and YAPPC, of course

There already is a perlmenu package thingy. I've used it for a couple of tty scripts, and it worked reasonably well. Easy to set up menus, and has all the features you could wish for: control chars for 'control', radio buttons, hierarchical menus, form fields, multi-page menus, etc etc.

It's ncurses based, and I checked the homepage, it can even be found on CPAN. Not updated since 1997, it seems, but it works. Check it out at perlmenu. It's quite easy to use.

To support the last statement, I could even use it before joining PM. That says something {grin}.
