help required


Hi all,


I am searching for documents that will really help me to design screens by

wrting shell scripts. I know how to do it to a certain extent , but what I am

really looking for is a screen which will be very user friendly and will have

almost all the features that we are used to do in the web.As for eg the

screens that we normally design by writing ASP etc.I really don't know if it

can be done but it will be of great help if someone can help me out with

some study material or particular urls having links to the same.


Thanks Prasun

Please follow the "advise" link in my sig. if you really want a helpful reply.
You should put your distro and location in your profile too.

Lets see now...
Title: help required
This is not specific enough - of course you require help, or you wouldn't be posting here. The best titles are where you put a short version of your question or some sort of immediate context - so we know what we are replying to.

OK - that's great. So was there a question in there?

You want to produce "screens" such as you may get writing in "ASP"

Why not just write ASP?

But I think the same functionality comes in other forms. Google is your freind.

really read the advise part of the sig. (see below)

making user friendly screen through shell scripting

Hi all,

This is yet another bump that I have to overcome within a very short span of time.

I want to develop screens with shell scripting ( so what's the big deal abot it ...you might think) that will almost accomodate all user moves . Normally we are used to seeing this type a screen (mostly developed in ASP) where the user has full liberty to navigate the screen (with her mouse) and do jobs within her privilege...like choosing a particular row and pressing a button to delete the data of that row. This is just but one of the many examples that we see in daily life. Now I want to make a similar screen by deploying shell scripting.Though it will be really laborious to do so , I have no other scope ( I mean due to some constraints) but to deploy it through shell scripting.

It will be really nice and appreciable if anyone can throw some light in this regard as to how can I obtain information pertaining to the problem I have just described.(Any links, url etc will do)

Thanks and Regards
Prasun.

I've merged your two identical threads discussing the same topic together as double posting is against our rules and we don't need the same topic discussed multiple times in different locations.

Okay, in regards to using the mouse, I'm not sure. What I'm going to suggest *may* have a solution but I'm not sure.

So do you want to write your app in BASH (script? which would be a bad idea, or in a real language or even something like Python and just make it run in a CLI environment rather than a GUI/X11 environment? Google for ncurses, it's what you're looking for. A library to make console apps look good without doing thigns the really hard way.

Um, I think you are meaning a GUI screen but on the command line?
You might want to look into ncurses, it lets you control the terminal, and a lot of leading command line applications are written in it (like Pine, ADOM, etc.)

Really? Where? (Can you direct us to a page which does this so we can see?)

I've had a look at ASP - it seems to produce similar things to phpwiki? But not having used it ... like with wiki pages users can edit screen content to a degree according to their priviledge.
