What I think you want is a package called OSProcess. This is available
from within Squeak: open the Package Universe browser and you'll find
it under the "System" category. Then see OSProcess class>>helloWorld
and other examples.

Also check out the CommandShell package.

This is a telnet server in Squeak called "REPLServer" (under the
"Network" category) which implements a Smalltalk-like command line
with history, editing and a few other features. You could re-use much
of the code there if you want. I think that every operating system has
a telnet client, so you get a free command line for any platform.

I haven't seen any ncurses-like functionality in Squeak before. In my
opinion, that type of environment has been long obsolete and you
should just use a modern GUI.
