New on CTAN: termmenu

Sean Allred submitted the

                termmenu

package.

Version number: 2015-05-23
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: The package provides support for terminal-based
menus using expl3

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

This package provides support for terminal-based menus using expl3.

When writing programs, it's often required to present the user with a
list of options/actions.  The user is then expected to select one of
these options for the program to process.

`termmenu` provides this mechanism for TeX.  Using `termmenu` requires
only `expl3` support, thus the `l3kernel` and `l3packages` are both
required.
