Command selector

Hi all,

I would like to make a very simple whdload front-end.
Just a screen listing game names (from a file) where we can navigate with arrow keys or joystick (joystick not mandatory) or type the beginning of name to place the cursor on the right line.

In fact I'm searching a equivalent of "select" under linux.

I made a quick search on aminet but I was not lucky.
Maybe someone here might know a good app for my purpose.

The two most obvious front-ends I can think of are KGLoad and AGS1.1 - I also made a very simple menu that scrolls down a text file list.

http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=33499 - KGload
http://www.paradroid.net/ags/ - AGS - I think this is only AGS 1.0

Not exactly what I was searching for but it maybe better, as soon as it's possible to type on keyboard in order to jump in the list.
I'm going to give it a try.

Thanks !

I've been looking for something similar for a while now... no success yet

I'm using a different approach but with similar results.

I have all my preinstalled games in one assigned volume 'Games:' with each game in it's own directory (courtesy of the KillerGorilla, of course).

I use nifty utility called mss to open a full screen shell (with KCON: as the device) with command line completion turned on. The start-up script CD's to the Games: assign and creates an alias:

alias r whdload `list quick nohead #?.slave`

So if I want to play ParasolStars I just type para hit TAB (which works like a search and completes the name) then ENTER. After that it's r followed by ENTER and chicken's done

8 keystrokes... not bad

Currently I also uses something similar. I use Kcon, with autocomplete I cd to the game dir then I press F10 ( alias to whdload *.slave )

It's ok so far but I'd like a better way.

I have not tried any front-end yet, but if it's fast, maybe I'll switch to a front-end.
