RFE: Tutorial in end-user ready to use format
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:32:40 EDT

Created attachment 15424 [details]
sgml2html error output
It's in "docbook" format, use "jw tutorial.sgml" to convert it.
Unfortunately, the tutorial really for "advanced users". It skips the
easiest to use and most functional newt functions like:
Those four all automatically center, format your text and basically

See "newt.h" for everything else.
