Projects / SATSHELL


SATSHELL is a GUI interface builder for shell scripts. The GUI screens are described using a simple easy-to-learn screen layout language (SAT/DL). The interface between SATSHELL and shell scripts is very simple as it uses the standard input/output mechanism. There are currently the following features: labeled entry boxes, buttons, check buttons, radio buttons, multi-column list boxes, drop-down select list, toolbars (with balloon help), menus, display text, borders and lines, and support for function keys.
