Can someone show me how to create a menu?

Can someone show me how to create a menu? I want a script someone who is not unix literate can use, with some simple commands like ls -al a directory or find files based on a date, does anyone know how to make a simple menu ? Thanks.

The 'dialog' command can be used to make simple text-based menus. If your users are using X, there's also the Xdialog command which supports dialog's options as well as more complex ones.
