You could check out curses/ncurses. There is a man page. It might be overkill for what you want, but you can look. It takes some effort to get started, but is not too bad to keep adding to. I actually just do this sort of thing in a quickie web page and run it through a browser. It only takes some simple tables. If you want to read in the answers, a Perl or PHP script will take care of it nicely. ////jerry > > > > -- > Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public Service Unix > > _______________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
