In my bachelor thesis, I designed and implemented a framework for creating interactive command line tutorials, called The Nut Shell. Here you can find the final thesis and the presentation:

Thesis (Director's Cut) Final talk

I posted the LaTeX source code of the thesis online – you are welcome to steal stuff from it!

While writing the thesis, I also blogged about my experiences (in German).

The resulting software framework can easily be adapted and reused to various command line environments, you can read more about it here.
