Displays user-friendly dialog boxes from shell scripts
This application provides a method of displaying several different types
of dialog boxes from shell scripts. This allows a developer of a script
to interact with the user in a much friendlier manner.
The following types of boxes are at your disposal:
yes/no Typical query style box with "Yes" and "No" answer buttons
menu A scrolling list of menu choices with single entry selection
input Query style box with text entry field
message Similar to the yes/no box, but with only an "Ok" button
text A scrollable text box that works like a simple file viewer
info A message display that allows asynchronous script execution
checklist Similar to the menu box, but allowing multiple selections
radiolist Checklist style box allowing single selections
guage Typical "progress report" style box
tail Allows viewing the end of files (tail) that auto updates
background tail Similar to tail but runs in the background.
