I have been working on getting a new module written with another perl
programmer for our gliding club. I decided to do it all the way of Perl
Best Practice. And it worked beautifully. My tests passed everywhere.
My friend works on Windows using Active State and his code installed and
tested ok too.
But where did it fall down - IO::Prompt !!!
Normally I would just use something like my $in = <STDIN> to get basic
input, maybe put it in a loop to make sure you get the data you want.
But I thought no, lets do the PBP and use prompt.
Since it is a recommended PBP and all the other code we have tried has
compiled and worked beautifully cross-platform - it seems a shame to
have this one let us down.
So... do you think we could do a little re-write to make it a little
more friendly for Win32?
Anyone up for it?
