    I'd probably look at using ncurses - http://web.cs.mun.ca/~rod/ncurses/ncurses.html
    and one or more of it's dependent libraries like panels, menus and forms
    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.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Thanks for link!

    But I have another question: Is it possible to use Ncurses in C++?
