Thanks for the input. Unfortunately from what I can tell both wxperl and perl/Gtk are very similar to perl/tk in that they are very mouse prone. Don't get me wrong I like Tk and use it, for certain things it can't be beat. However, for this particular instance I am dealing with a menu that's built from the results of a database query and I am looking for something with the feel of a scroll down menu using arrow keys that won't make the user grab for their mouse.
Something like this.
# Sample Cmenu script
menu_initialise("Cmenu Sample Script");
menu_init("Menu Title","Menu Help Text");
chop($sel = menu_display("Menu Prompt"));
I just need a way to make the choices colored in order to fit into my schema
