I have not used either of these, but here are 2 modules that you might test.

http://search.cpan.org/~corliss/CursesWidgets-1.997/Widgets/Menu.pm
http://search.cpan.org/~dazjorz/Term-Menu-0.09/lib/Term/Menu.pm

You should also do some additional searching on cpan, such as:

Initially I wouldn't worry about the syntax needed to build a menu system.  I'd start by creating a detailed flowchart of your entire program.  Next would be to take each of the items in the flowchart and write the pseudo code.  Once the pseudo code is done then look into the required syntax.

My Perl application runs on HPUX as console application. It is an interactive console application on HPUX. For ex:
Main Menu
**************
1. select1
2. Select2
3. select 3.

Enter the option : 1
# Here sub menu should appear
Select1 Submenu
1.  option1
2.  option2
3. optons3
Enter the option: 1

select options1 submneu:
1. cmd1
2. cmd2
3. cmd3
Enter ok to continue, b to previous menu or e to Abort:

THis is the kind of menu driven programm i am looking for..But in Perl I dont know the syntax of how to write this kind of programm.. Is there any object oriented way or writing this interactive programm.

Apreicate your help
