How do I do fancy stuff with the keyboard/screen/mouse?

How you access/control keyboards, screens, and pointing devices (``mice'') is system-dependent. Try the following modules:

    Term::Cap                   Standard perl distribution
    Term::ReadKey               CPAN
    Term::ReadLine::Gnu         CPAN
    Term::ReadLine::Perl        CPAN
    Term::Screen                CPAN

    Term::Cap                   Standard perl distribution
    Curses                      CPAN
    Term::ANSIColor             CPAN

    Tk                          CPAN
