Project Description

I have a shell script that takes several command line arguments as input and produces text output.

I would like to add a web interface to execute the script and display the output. The web interface will read input (ie. text boxes, dropdown menu, radio button, etc) and pass along the input as command line arguments to the script. It will then display the text output of the script.


- prefer coding in perl, php or python (ie. LAMP)

- no special formatting of output required

- the script should:

-- test the input (eg. empty values, non-alphanumeric characters, etc.)

-- check for existence of the shell script

-- pass along any error messages (ie. STDERR) from the shell script

-- check for empty output from the shell script

We expect to modify the shell script in the future (ie. add more flags) so future work on the web interface likely required. This work is part of a larger POC, depending on the success of this work we expect to have similar projects for other shell scripts in the future.
