shell script to run commands in different terminals


how to write shell script that runs different commands(like:ls,ps,ls-l) in differnt terminals(each command should run in different terminal).

Why do you need a terminal for the processes to run them?
You could them in a new (sub)shell. But you could also just send the process into the background with a trailing ampersand:

./program1 -arg1 -arg2 > pr1.log &
./program2 &

What do you mean by terminal? A hardware terminal device, or something like an xterm?
