    Well how much C / Linux programming do you know already?

    Sure what you ask is possible, but it's not likely to be a couple of hundred lines which could be posted here.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Looks like fun. But writing a GUI framework doesn't.
    I would just use Gtk or Qt.
