This semester, for a software engineering class, I have a term project that involves using several software engineering tools, extensive documentation, and a functional end-product. From the available projects (supplied by the professor), I have chosen a "GUI to command line translator for Unix shell."
My plan is to create a .htm page with an image. This image will have an image map implemented so that when the user clicks on a part of the image (ex. "Change Directory") it will push the command out to a terminal.
That said, I am turning to Ubuntu community with a few questions:
- I have seen on several example pages that such a program is feasible and has been done before. However, most of them are designed so that the web page is loaded from a server and then pushed out to the computer. I just want to run mine locally. In HTML, would my command look like this?:
<a href="COMMAND" target="where?"> <!--code for image map, etc ---> </a>
- Does anybody have suggestions on what functions I should use? Common ones or useful ones? I was thinking that I would do mainly information-based commands, such as printing Operating System details, memory usage, etc etc.
Thanks in advance to any and all replies!
