Yes, i searched, but i found nothing specific to TermReadkey.

Currently, Term::ReadKey IS part of cygwin-perl..., the whole 
Bundle::CPAN is part of ctgwin-perl. 

I would include some more modules if there are wishes:-)

O.K., no problem with that. Just would like to see libiconv be part of
the official distri.
