Need help creating a menu.

Hi Master of masters,

Thanks for ur reply.
Need ur help for following. Is it possible to create menu for following in linux or a function.

> Look in logs	> Status	> Action			> End Action
> CONFSUCCESS	> Success	> Show message as successful	> Enter to continue
> CONFFAIL	> Failure	> Show message as failure 	> Exit

First is to look logs for the message, secondly show status, thirdly depending on success or failure, End actions Enter or Exit.

Assuming you are using the bash shell, the select command can be used to create a user selectable menu.
