How does bash-dialog an kconfig work together?

Hi everyone,

I want to understand how the menuconfig is done e.g.: for a linux-kernel or Buildroot. What I know is, that it's using lxdialog as GUI, and kconfig somehow carrys the logical part (like selects, depends etc.).

But where or how does dialog gets the information out of the kconfig files? There doesn't seem to be much information in the internet.

Thanks for the support

What i found out:

I believe the kconfiglib is used to load the menus, but no examples are given, how this is exactly done :/
