  • Looks like you didn't try Shell::Base [cpan.org], which I wrote a few years ago for exactly the same purpose, and it's based on Python's Cmd class. Despite its low version number and large amount of "failing" tests (which are /all/ because of Term::ReadLine and Term::Size problems) it's mostly complete and usable. By default, it's a little Unix-specific, though there's nothing inherently Unix-specific in it. The readline dependency can be removed easily, and in fact the docs give an example of how to do it.
