I'm ++'ing because it seems like it worked, I just don't get it..

What's happening here? I know what the game is, and I think I'm just missing the graphical representation that's going on.. Thoughts?

    You need a better VT100 terminal emulator (it looks fine in both xterm and OS X's

    It works fine on my redhat 8.x box but I get the same type of output that one4k4 gets when I run it in a dos window while under WinME. Just though to try cygwin on the ME machine and still get the same as under dos. FWIW I'm running perl 5.8.0 on redhat and 5.6.1 built for MSWin32-x86 on ME.


      under win32 did you try it under rxvt?
      that usually solves my terminal needs.
        Didn't have rxvt installed. Used the standard Cgywin window. I noticed that there was an update to Cygwin and am downloading it now. After seeing your question I checked for rxvt but hadn't installed it. I now have it in the list of items to download and install. I did log into my Mandrake 8.1 box that has perl 5.6.1 and tried there and it runs properly. Will try it using rxvt under WinME as soon as the download finishes (56k connection for the LAN so is taking a while) and see how it goes.

        FWIW... I just downloaded and installed MacPerl on my old Power Computing PowerCenter 120 running MacOS9.1. I grabbed the code and ran it and am getting the same type of output as when running it under Windoze that one4k4 shows above.


        Update: Got rxvt installed in cygwin and displays fine in it. Still displaying as above in in straight bash shell window.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
