Dialog command not recognized on debian sarge's bash!!!


Hello! I'm trying to execute the following two lines from command line on debian sarge system:

$cal > menuchoice.temp.$$

$dialog --backtitle "Linux Shell Tutorial" --title "Calender" --infobox "`cat menuchoice.temp.$$`" 9 25 ; read

the error output is:

bash: dialog: command not found

what i 've to do to execute these commands. I tried man dialog but getting another error message:
NO manual entry for dialog.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Try
apt-get install dialog

dialog isn't part of bash, it's a standalone program.


Cheers,
Tink
