For those of us with no experience writing interactive perl scripts for 
the web, could you summarize why this is a problem (flow-wise)? What is 
it about the terminal-based prompt:

   sub prompt {
      my $message = shift;
      print "$message\n";
      chomp(my $out = <>);
      return $out;
   }

that doesn't translate to web servers?
