Array based selection of values by selecting either index or member

say I have

Code:
istofitems="beans  rice  carrots  radishes rutabaga spinach"


and I want the end user to select something like below

Code:
Please enter the veg you like from 

 1 ) beans 
 2) rice 
 3) carrots 
4) radishes 
5) rutabaga 
6) spinach
Q) Quit

Enter either Value or Number:  <- user enters either number corresponding to entry or the name

and return the user selection in a variable.

now the problem is that the list is always variables -- today it has 6 members, later on it may grow to 20, and I can't add them to the list manually... All I can is add them to list in first place.

NAME
Locale::Script - standard codes for script identification SYNOPSIS
use Locale::Script; $script = code2script('phnx'); # 'Phoenician' $code = script2code('Phoenician'); # 'Phnx' $code = script2code('Phoenician', LOCALE_CODE_NUMERIC); # 115 @codes = all_script_codes(); @scripts = all_script_names(); DESCRIPTION
The "Locale::Script" module provides access to standards codes used for identifying scripts, such as those defined in ISO 15924. Most of the routines take an optional additional argument which specifies the code set to use. If not specified, the default ISO 15924 four-letter codes will be used. SUPPORTED CODE SETS
There are several different code sets you can use for identifying scripts. The ones currently supported are: alpha This is a set of four-letter (capitalized) codes from ISO 15924 such as 'Phnx' for Phoenician. This code set is identified with the symbol "LOCALE_SCRIPT_ALPHA". The Zxxx, Zyyy, and Zzzz codes are not used. This is the default code set. numeric This is a set of three-digit numeric codes from ISO 15924 such as 115 for Phoenician. This code set is identified with the symbol "LOCALE_SCRIPT_NUMERIC".
