Native Terminal Applications


If I have a simple, native application written in C that runs in a *nix terminal....is there any way to get that working in playbook or BB10? 


I don't know anything about OpenGL. I am used to having a *nix terminal render text and and accept keyboard responses.  I really wish there was a terminal interface for my BlackBerry Playbook.

Re: Native Terminal Applications

you might wish to upload your app into shared folder then run it using BG shell (http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/87835/)
