Which Text-Based UI Do You Code With? 211

JHWH asks: "I've been asked to design and implement a management software system with text based user interface as the replacement of an older one running on AS/400.

All this in the 21st century! Host systems will be Linux, the language will be C or C++. I already thought about the use of text based browsers like lynx or links. So now I have to wipe the dust away from my ncurses manual, or can Slashdot suggest something more effective?"
