Gtkdialog text markup editor

In Puppy Linux we make heavy use of Gtkdialog for GUIs written in Bash/Ash scripts. Gtkdialog is easy to use and fairly powerful. One problem though is limited documentation.

If you have the 'devx' SFS file loaded, you will find code examples at /usr/share/doc/gtkdialog3, which are invaluable. However, Gtkdialog has capabilities that are not documented or hardly so.

Whatever aids we can get are most welcome. I did not know all the capabilities of the text markup mode, but forum member vovchik found a "Gtkdialog text markup editor" GUI application, in French that he has translated and made available for us:

This is just a small script, so I have put it into the Woof rootfs-skeleton, as /usr/sbin/markup, and created a menu entry, in the "Utility" category.
