Satya's blog - vid2dvd - perl-to-shell script to make dvd menus
I wrote a crazy perl program that spits out a shellscript that runs imagemagick and various DVD authoring programs to create a menu for the DVD I'm building.
The idea of this script is one-clickiness.

(and following lines)
put the names of the raw file or files (before conversion with tovid) --

Then run this script (give it pal or ntsc as a parameter).
It should spit out a shell script for building a menu complete
with "Play all" and "Back" buttons.
Convert the raw or whatever videos to your dvd format with:
It is a symptom of NIH (not invented here). makemenu does much of what this does, but I didn't like the style of menu makemenu produces So I wrote me own when I *should* have been hacking makemenu.
