in reply to <STDIN> "anticipate" input?

I don't know if it works on win32, but Term::ReadLine has a prompt. Are you willing to use a GUI, like Tk? If so, you could use a Text widget and you could manipulate it anyway you want.

    Yes, I would use a GUI. Though I never used one before. I'll do some research on how to use them... But without GUIs I suppose there's no way to do this, or is there?

      Term::Readline works without a GUI; "term" is short for "terminal", which generally indicates command-line, or at least a text-based UI.
