Linux Step By Steps


The following are two simple script lines to wet your appetite for further reading

From: Peck Dickens <>

I've been promising to show you things that are guru in nature with regards to scripting. Run this:

# First shell script with "dialog"
dialog --title "Hi Buckhwheat!" \
--msgbox "\n End of tip one !" 6 25

From: Andy Bradford <>

I ran it... it was cool. I agree completely with the power of two lines... Here's my little two line addition:

button .dialog -text "Hi Buckwheat!" -command exit
pack .dialog -padx 2 -pady 2

This has to be run in X though. :-)
