Future features for TRK
Friday, March 10, 2006

Apparently the virusscanner in TRK is pretty popular, and by popular demand I 'm in the process of incorporating AVG (Grisoft Antivirus) for Linux into the next release of TRK. It will be integrated in the same way as with F-Prot, so using updatetrk or downloaded when called for.
Another plan, also by popular demand, is to build a menu for TRK. Unfortunately I don 't find any tools that easily create menus in console or framebuffer mode, so I 'm planning to start programming one myself using the ncurses libraries. You will know similar menus from using Midnight Commander or when making a Linux kernel with 'make menuconfig'.
I 'm planning to make a menu that runs on top of your console and can be called upon using your function keys.
Unfortunately I 'm not a programmer, so I 'll have to figure it out by tutorials and such.
People with ncurses programming experience are welcome to help me.
