Question new shell window by script or code


I want to make a simple chat program using sockets. I'm thinking on how the client GUI will be since I can't use GTK and would like to display to the user in separate windows the messages received from the different groups he is a member of, kinda like mIRC. Also, display a window with the list members of a group.

My question :

Is there a way to start a new shell window by code and/or script ?

- One window could be used for command input by the user, the other for output, messages, members of groups, etc.

- Maybe redirect the display to it so a forked process prints to it

Got any ideas on this?
