You could check out curses/ncurses. There is a man page.
It might be overkill for what you want, but you can look.
It takes some effort to get started, but is not too bad to
keep adding to.
I actually just do this sort of thing in a quickie web page and
run it through a browser. It only takes some simple tables.
If you want to read in the answers, a Perl or PHP script will
take care of it nicely.
