Module shellmod
SummaryWrite Linuxconf modules using Bash or Perl
AuthorJacques Gélinas
DescriptionShellmod lets you write module using bash and perl and offers some limited access to Linuxconf framework. You have access to:

  • The user interface (text,HTML,GUI transparently).
  • The co-manager facility.

You can also write standalone utility (script operating without Linuxconf). For this you need the linuxconf-lib and linuxconf-util package. A module may be used both way btw (as a module or standalone).
