 frontend for a shell

Hello,

I would like to write a kind of graphical front-end for command shells.
The only thing it should do is starting up a shell (chosen by the user (bash, csh of ksh)), running it in the background,
passing commands to it, and receiving output from the shell.
Now, is there anybody who has some experience with this ?
I have no idea how I'll have to implement the part of passing commands to a running shell and receiving output from it.

thanks,

Take a look at the chapter on Pseudo Terminals in Stevens'
Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment.

Try Tcl/Tk. It has a easy to use/learn graphics widget set.
Look at
    http://starbase.neosoft.com/~claird/comp.lang.tcl/tcl_tutorials.html
or
    http://www.tcltk.com/
or
    www.ajubasolutions.com
    then click on  "Tcl Developer Xchange"

good luck,
Art
