How can I build an ncurses based menu? Are there any other solutions for building "menus" for use on the console? I just need an "inter-operating system" (all non-windows :P) solution. Are there any good solutions to build/create menus in perl?
Would the program
dialog be sufficient for your needs? It can do basic dialogs and even more complex stuff. Maybe you should look into it.
See http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/2807 for some further information.
Ofcourse, this wouldn't be a 100% perl solution.
For a good example of using curses with Perl, you might want to pick up a copy of Steven L Kunz's* perl menus'' package (menu.pl'') via anonymous FTP from ``ftp.iastate.edu''. It's in the directory /pub/perl as: menu.pl.v3.1.tar.Z
