Windows applications (like ActivePerl) are mostly off-topic on this list,
especially since there's a perfectly good Cygwin alternative available
(which, BTW, comes with Term::ReadKey).

However, you do realize that "a Perl script running in a Cygwin shell or
SSH session" may not even be running in a terminal as ActivePerl
understands it, right?
