Subject: Interactive install
Term::ReadKey is a lovely module, but it requires an interactive install during make test. I absolutely hate interactivity during install as I'm often installing lots of modules on lots of machines. You should be able to test it by using fake terminals and let my installs run faster, right gellyfish? ;-)
OK, I figure that I can do a coverage test on the module (i.e. everything sort of works) but I'm buggered if I can test the actual real functionality as this relies on the perceived effect on screen doesnt it ? I do agree however, there should be a non- interactive test and I will do *something* for the next release - I guess this will be after XMas now ( I have promised to make a new release of XML::XSLT in the new year too ) ... /J\

*something* for the next release - OK, other events have precipitated a new release :) 2.17 is on CPAN now with a non-interactive test.pl
