Folks:
I have my main code working with my BASH app; however, I want to develop an interface that is similar to Nano with the commands on the bottom of the screen, and the top half is my input/output area.

I am not sure what you call, what I want to do. Can you please direct me to resources, which will help?

Thanks.

I don't think you can do it in Bash. You have to use a "real" programming like Python or C with the curses library.
