Hi

I am building an embedded linux and was wondering what I could use to create a menu similar to the ones they use in VM Ware ESX

I know there is dialog but are there any other tools to use? Any better ideas?

How's your 'C', as historically console based menuing system's have tended to utilise the curses library.

It is a bit rusty I must admit. But ncurses is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks
