dialog: A utility for creating TTY dialog boxes1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

Dialog is a utility that allows you to show dialog boxes (containing questions or messages) in TTY (text mode) interfaces from shell scripts.

Dialog is initally written by Savio Lam and various branches do exist (e.g. "lxdialog" which is used for a linux kernel "make menuconfig"). This is the branch maintained by Thomas Dickey.
