Full Screen Script help


Hi all,
i'm new in linux environment and have a v. tough task. Please help me how to initiate it.
give me some expample scripts..
the prob def is :

* i am trying to write a full-screen utility, that displays the permissions of a directory and all the directories in the directory's path. it will also show other information about the directories, as the cursor is moved up and down the list of directory names.
* i'm also using a Windows telnet session, because that is how I will be testing the script. I use the Windows version of QVT/Term.

please tell me how to solve this prob..

Do you mean you want to be able to scroll the output? What about:
ls -lR | more
ls -lR | less

This is clear to no one, jackjill.
24x80 is not full screen but full window, unless you work with an old tty terminal, which I doubt or outside a windowing environment ...

Can you really elaborate on what you are looking for ?

I think jackjill's looking for help regarding pure text mode, outside of X windows (and outside of a graphical environment).

"ls -lR | more" work well in console mode too, and he's not happy with that.
I guess acid_kewpie is right and it's some kind of midnight commander that what jackjill wants ...

Just make your text size bigger within your emulator.
