    Not sure exactly what you mean by 'like putty'
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    I think the OP a menu in a console app, like the "secure shell (ssh)" replacement "putty" in Windows - but I'm by no means sure.

    Since the source code for Putty is available, I don't see why asking here is a better choice than looking at the source - but I could have missunderstood the original question, or it may be that the original poster didn't realize that Putty is available in source as well as binary.

    I think you have to read more carefully

    "I see programs in windows like putty or something like that,how do you create something like that"
    and my topic title
    "Creating a user interface"

    So I'm not pointing to putty itself, but creating A User interface for A program (trying to create it myselft)

    I preffer a good manual or something..
    Or if it's simple, maybe someone can explain me?

    The cmd windows is not really a good interface

    In all fairness you couldn't have been more vague. Reading carefully should only apply to something with a little more detail than your Opening post.

    That's generally present in any gui. You do it by learning a native Operating system windowing api or use a multiplatform api like wxWidgets or the like. If you check out wxDevCpp it has the documentation for starting wxWidgets Applications.
