looking for an interactive perl shell...

Been playing with Devel::REPL. Its interesting but segfaults a bit. Not sure of thats a problem in my local::lib install, but that much flail is irritating. I like the way most things work, but need to get my head around some strange ness in for loops =)

So tinkering with it to do interactive DBI and DBD::Oracle stuff. sqlplus is fail on a stick without readline support =( I wish that Oracle would move catch up to at least the mid 1990's and add at least basic readline functionality. I wonder if you have to pay extra for that?

I'd like to try Zoidberg, but the current version fails to build. Maybe next version. ;)
