Perl5 library for text-mode user interface widgets


I needed a basic text-mode GUI framework to implement some nice-looking proggies on Linux. Didn’t find any around, so necessity became the mother of PerlVision. And this beast kept growing as I made love to Perl, so now it’s far from ‘basic’. Provides 90 of the features you’d want for a user interface, including check boxes, radio buttons, three different styles ! of pushbuttons, single and multiple selection list boxes, an extensible edit box that does auto-wrapping, a scrollable viewbox, single line text entry fields, a menu bar with pulldown menus, and full pop-up dialog boxes with multiple controls.

This version of PerlVision uses Will Setzer’s dynaload module for Perl, so you need to get and compile that first, from ftp//

PerlVision will only work with Perl 5+ of-course upgrade   die!.
