Creating NCurses wrappers for existing scripts

samwyse has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

My customer has a bunch of Perl command line scripts. They all are used like this: "myscript -a arg -b -c arg,arg". Each script has a distinct set of flags which can take zero, one or many arguments; generally there are no other parameters. So that these can be used by people with less training, I have been asked to create curses-based wrappers for these scripts that will look like this:

myscript description option a: __________ option b: [ ] option c: __________ __________ __________ [OK] [Cancel]

Can anyone point me to something that will help me churn these out quickly, preferably using a simple config file for each script? Thanks!
