716: Shell Scripting Interfaces with Dialog and Zenity
Ray Smith , Portland General Electric    Biography

Objectives: Demonstrate easy-to-program solutions for interactive shell scripts
Provide adequate training for the attendee to start writing interactive shells right away
Share shell script snippets and a little philosophy
Abstract: Most shell scripts provide a static interface between a single user (generally the administrator or cron) and the server. When user input is required, solutions can range from simple to elegant. This session will demonstrate how to program useful (even attractive) interfaces between your users and the shell using dialog and its fancier cousin zenity.
