Perl Console is a light program that lets you evaluate Perl code interactively. It uses Readline for grabing input and provides completion with all the namespaces loaded during your session.
This is pretty useful for Perl developers that write modules. You can load a module in your session and test a function exported by the module.
Readline is used to grab user input and provides then all the facilities your are used to : completion, key bindings, ...
PerlConsole relies on the follwoing modules :
Module::Refresh(needed for refreshing the loaded modules without quitting the console)
Lexical::Persistence(needed for simulating a namespace within the console)
Getopt::Long(for parsing the command line)
