Thats a good beginners project. But you should go through
one of the tutorials first because you are still asking a lot of
very basic questions. A few hours going through the
rudimentary things will speed up your project a lot.

I assume you want it to have a GUI fron end with buttons etc?
Yes thats possible and my tutorial includes a topic to get you
started plus some example programs. but it is a more advanced
topic that really requires you to know about OOP and event-driven
style programs first.
