i have a goal to make a command line application that has a gui. I am learning c++ and want to use it. But i cant seem to find a website that will teach how to make a gui for a command line application. For an example of what i mean click on this link i'm using yast as an example. http://www-uxsup.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/doc/suse/sles9/adminguide-sles9/images/yast2_ncurses_main.png i have googled but have had no luck

You can also checkout Qt, which is a c++ GUI Framework.

I'm after creating a gui in a command line app rather then gnome/kde or anything that uses the server for that matter. Unless of course qt can do that as well. My intention with this program is to be ran remotely on a server without an server

I don't know of anything else apart from ncurses. It's fairly simple and straight forward to use IMHO with plenty of tutorials available.
