in thread Automate Making Menus


I downloaded it. Now it's just a matter of figuring out how to use it.

Ncurses is pretty cool. Currently, I code in Unix shell + dialog
if I want to make ncurses menus. Here's a look at one of them.

Something I've used and abused in the above code is Perl's
string multiplier 'x'. It comes in handy:
print "=" x 80;

Some languages don't have something so cool like that.

    Hanging around the monastry will learn you many more neat tricks. To name a few:
    1. use strict and warnigns and diagnostics or die
    2. lingual-like for/while/if/unless constructs, eg.
      print "I love perl ".$_++." times\n" while m/vroom/; print "Bwech" unless m/perl/ or not substr($^O, 'linux' );
    3. split (/tell chipmunk I did resist the temptation)
    4. eval
    5. .... and many others.
    Mehopes you will enjoy the wonders of perl!

      Cool, thanks again.

      I guess it's obvious that I code in Perl like a 'C' Programmer.
      I'll definately pick up the traits of a Perl Programmer from hanging
      around here, something that some books just don't teach.

      I'm learning Perl from a 900 page book called "Mastering Perl 5",
      by Eric C. Herrmann. I'm about 2/3 through, it's okay but it can
      pretty dry at times. It teaches the methods of Kung-Fu, but not the
      art of Kung-Fu.

      The name of the book is misleading. You cannot be a "Master",
      without having style and grace.

      Now, let's see if I can Walk my Talk...
