Description Alastair McKinstry 2004-06-26 09:42:38 UTC
Submitted as an enhancement request to Debian:

Please add the 'form' option for compatability with 'dialog'


Comment 1 Thomas E. Dickey 2004-07-14 00:34:23 UTC
Elaborating, someone should rewrite whiptail.

Comment 2 Miroslav Lichvar 2011-06-02 11:56:12 UTC
It would take a lot of work to be fully compatible with dialog and I'm not sure we really need that. After 7 years there was no patch for the form option, so I'm closing this bug.

Of course, patches are still welcome.
