simulating a menu using shell programming like in windows.

Hi Friends,

I would like to write a shell script in unix which displays a menu. The options in the menu needs to be chosen using the navigation keys(up arrow or down arrow). At present I am entering the menu option number for the option to be chosen. Can anybody give me an idea about how the menu can be used using the navigation keys.

Hi Malini,
Linux has ncurses and readline that may be useful for you. Take a look at its functionality...not sure about menus but theres lot of good gui stuff there.
