    What programming language do you want to use ?
    What Linux do you use?
    Do you want to code something with gui or just terminal ?

    The shell is very very limited. I would not adwise that. It is a scripting language an not a programming language.

    But it depends what you have in mind. have a look at ncurses then you can use it with shell commands.

    Just google shell scripting or bash scripting (asuming you will use bash other shells are even more limited i suppose)

    About a subject:

    How a about an interface for mplayer. This is posible in ncurses. I know that there are GUIs for it but in my expirience they dont work very well. So a ncurses "what file do you want to play, any options to submit" thingy would be nice i guess. Also this is not too hard.

    hello....i thought about the interface of mplayer.it is a good idea.
    but can u please suggest me the main topics of ncurses for this purpose.
    actually i am a php developer. and basic knowledge of shell scripting.
    this is my college project.i have only one week to complete this project..
    any way which would lead to develop project in less time..??

    Hi

    I would guess you could do it in 3 or 4 days. Maybe less depends on your knowledge. With ncourses you can make a nice looking menu for the file selection menu what file you want to play. also you can specify another window for options to give to mplayer. You could all these do with pure shell i think but it would not look so nice.
