Hello All,

Is it possible to create Linux Console apps like YAST or the Red Hat TUI (Text User Interface) using RB?

Although nothing is impossible, I think creating pseudo-graphical console apps in RB is pretty close.

Since you only have basic, slightly flaky access to stdin, stdout and stderr and no ability to link to static libraries that might help, it certainly isn't something I'd attempt.
