=head1 NAME

IO::Prompt - Interactively prompt for user input


=head1 STATUS

This module is no longer being maintained.

Use the IO::Prompter module instead.


=head1 VERSION

This document describes IO::Prompt version 0.997004

=head1 SYNOPSIS

    use IO::Prompt;
    while( prompt "next: " ) {
        print "You said '$_'\n";
    }

=head1 DESCRIPTION

By default, this module exports a single function C<prompt>.  It prompts the
user to enter some input, and returns an object that represents the user input.

You may specify various flags to the function to affect its behaviour; most
notably, it defaults to automatically C<chomp> the input, unless the C<-line>
flag is specified.

Two other functions are exported at request: C<hand_print>, which simulates
hand-typing to the console; and C<get_input>, which is the lower-level function
that actually prompts the user for a suitable input.

Note that this is an interim re-release. A full release with better
documentation will follow in the near future. Meanwhile, please consult
the F<examples> directory from this module's CPAN distribution to better
understand how to make use of this module.
  
=head1 INTERFACE 

=head2 Arguments to C<prompt>

Any argument not of the following forms is treated as part of the text of the
prompt itself.

 Flag   Long form      Arg          Effect
 ----   ---------      ---          ------
                       <str>        Use <str> as prompt

                       <filehandle> Prompt to specified filehandle

                       <hashref>    Flatten hash entries into argument list
                                    (useful for aggregating the options below)

 -p     -prompt        <str>        Specify prompt explicitly

 -s     -speed         <num>        Simulated typing speed (seconds/char)

 -e     -echo          <str>        What to echo for each char typed

 -nl    -newline       <str>        When a newline is typed, echo <str> instead

 -d     -default       <str>        What to return if only <return> pressed


 -r     -require       <hashref>    Each value of each entry must 'smartmatch'
                                    the input else corresponding key is printed
                                    as error message:
                                     - Subs must return true when passed input
                                     - Regexes must pattern match input
                                     - Strings must eq match input
                                     - Arrays are flattened & recursively matched
                                     - Hashes must return true for input as key

 -u     -until         <str|rgx>    Fail if input matches <str|regex>
        -fail_if               

 -w     -while         <str|rgx>    Fail unless input matches <str|regex>
        -okay_if       

 -m     -menu          <list|hash>  Show the data specified as a menu 
                                    and allow one to be selected. Enter
                                    an <ESC> to back up one level.

 -1     -one_char                   Return immediately after first char typed

 -x     -escape                     Pressing <ESC> returns "\e" immediately

 -raw   -raw_input                  Return only the string that was input
                                    (turns off context-sensitive features)

 -c     -clear                      Clear screen before prompt
 -f     -clear_first                Clear screen before first prompt only

 -a     -argv                       Load @ARGV from input if @ARGV empty

 -l     -line                       Don't autochomp

 -t     -tty                        Prompt to terminal no matter what

 -y     -yes                        Return true if [yY] entered, false otherwise
 -yn    -yes_no                     Return true if [yY], false if [nN]
 -Y     -Yes                        Return true if 'Y' entered, false otherwise
 -YN    -Yes_No                     Return true if 'Y', false if 'N'

 -num   -number                     Accept only valid numbers as input
 -i     -integer                    Accept only valid integers as input

Note that the underscores between words in flags like C<-one_char> and
C<-yes_no> are optional.

Flags can be "cuddled". For example:

     prompt("next: ", -tyn1s=>0.2)   # -tty, -yes, -no, -one_char, -speed=>0.2

=head2 "Hand-written" printing via C<hand_print()>

The C<hand_print()> subroutine takes a string and prints it out in the
stop-and-start manner of hand-typed text.

=head2 Low-level input retrieval via C<get_input()>

The C<get_input()> subroutine is a low-level utility subroutine that
takes an input filehandle, an output filehandle, a reference to a hash
of options (as listed for C<prompt()>, above) and a single prompt
string. It prints the prompt and retreives the input. You almost
certainly want to use C<prompt()> instead.



=head1 DIAGNOSTICS

=over

=item C<< Can't write prompt to read-only $_ >>

You specified a filehandle to which the prompt should be written, but
that filehandle was not writeable. Did you pass the wrong filehandle, or
open it in the wrong mode?

=item C<< Missing argument for %s option >>

The flag you specified takes an argument, but you didn't provide that
argument.

=item C<< Unknown flag ($s) in prompt >>

The flag you specified wasn't one of those that C<prompt()> understands. Did
you misspell it, perhaps?

=item C<< Argument to -require must be hash reference >>

The C<-require> option takes a single argument that is a hash. You tried to
pass it something else. Try a hash instead.

=item C<< Cannot write to terminal: %s >>

=item C<< Cannot read from terminal: %s >>

C<prompt()> attempted to access the terminal but couldn't. This may mean your
environment has no C</dev/tty> available, in which case there isn't much you
can do with this module. Sorry.

=item C<< Can't open %s: %s >>

C<prompt()> tried to read input via C<*ARGV> from a file specified on the
command-line, but the file couldn't be opened for the reason shown. This is
usually either a permission problem, a non-existent file, or a mistyped
filepath.

 
=item C<< Argument to -menu must be hash or array reference >>

The C<-menu> option requires an argument that is either an array:

    prompt -menu=>['yes', 'no', 'maybe'];

or a hash:

    prompt -menu=>{yes=>1, no=>0, maybe=>0.5};

or a hash of hashes (of hashes (of array))

=item C<< Too many -menu items >>

=item C<< Too few -menu items >>

A menu can't have fewer than 1 or more than 26 items.

=head1 FAQ

This is a collection of things that might help.  Please send your
questions that are not answered here to Damian Conway
C<< <DCONWAY@cpan.org> >>

=head2 Can I use this module with ActivePerl on Windows?

Up to now, the answer was 'No', but this has changed.

You still cannot use ActivePerl, but if you use the Cygwin environment
(http://sources.redhat.com), which brings its own perl, and have
the latest IO::Tty (v0.05 or later) installed, it should work (feedback
appreciated). 


=head1 THANKS

My deepest gratitude to Autrijus Tang and Brian Ingerson, who have taken
care of this module for the past twelve months, while I was off trekking
in the highlands of Perl 6. Now it's their turn for some mountain air,
I'll be looking after this module again.
