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}.

Cheers,

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
