svDialogs-package: SciViews - Standard Dialog Boxes for R

Important functions


Under Linux, you should install 'yad' (preferably), or 'zenity'. If you use 'zenity', you cannot build more complex dlg_form() dialog boxes, and some versions trigger a warning like: "Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged." You do not get these inconveniences if you use 'yad' (default choice in case both programs are installed simultaneously).
