Description Alastair McKinstry 2004-06-26 05:42:38 EDT
Submitted as an enhancement request to Debian:

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

Comment 1 Thomas E. Dickey 2004-07-13 20:34:23 EDT
Elaborating, someone should rewrite whiptail.
Comment 2 Miroslav Lichvar 2011-06-02 07:56:12 EDT
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.
