Term::Screen version 1.06 ========================= This module provides a simple interface to the terminal control features for character mode terminals. INSTALLATION This module will build in the usual way : perl Makefile.PL make make test make install This last step may need to be done as a user with permission to write into the Perl library directories - if you are not able to do this you may run the first step with: perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/some/directory/you/can/write/to And then run the rest of the procedure as usual - you will need to add that path to @INC as described in the FAQ or in the manpage for the 'lib' pragma. As of the 1.04 release the original test.pl has been moved to the examples directory as it wasn't really appropriate for a unit test. You can of course still run it to check this behaves as expected on your platform. DEPENDENCIES This module depends on version 1.01 or greater of Term::Cap - whilst this module has been in the core Perl distribution for some years it had previously required a patch - 1.01 is available as part of the 5.7.2 development release (not intended for general release) and will be in 5.8.0 - it is hoped that 1.02 will be released to CPAN for those who dont want to upgrade their version of Perl just now. TO DO Make a terminfo version of this so better function key support would be built in. Make an MS-DOS version and a MAC version and an OS/2 version and a VMS version, and ... so we can stop seeing "how can I read one char questions" SUPPORT Please contact the current maintainer of this module to report any bugs or suggest changes to this module.
