Hope this is the right list, it said on the dialog page to use the ncurses mail list so...
$ ./dialog --version
This problem exhibits on my builds on AIX 6.1, Linux RHEL 6 and Solaris SPARC 10
When using dialog for --programbox like this:
ls | ./dialog --programbox 10 20
We don't get any output, the screen flashes really quickly, no OK button is displayed so the output is cleared immediately.
My understanding from the manpage is that this should display an OK prompt at program completion.
This is how prgbox works:
./dialog --prgbox ls 10 20
This does display the OK prompt, but really I need the flexibility of feeding in piped output, hence my desire to use --programbox
Am I using it wrong? Or is there a bug? The 'samples' don't work either (they do the same thing) - the samples scroll the programbox output, then quit without waiting for 'OK' to be chosen.
Thanks for any help
