==== Description: ====
Every scripter writes his own functions for very common shared features, like
- but not limited to:  status & yesno.

TUI is not only a collection of commands of such kind, but accomplishes its
name and provides an interface like feeling that is very easy to attain and

It also takes care of issues when sharing your scripts with your own
For example, when you need to call external applications, such as webbrowser,
filemanagers or editors, TUI not only checks for you wether the user is in GUI
or CLI mode, but it also openes his selected application for that specific
environmental task. 
In short? - tui-edit, might open EMACS in GUI, while it would open VIM in CLI
(i'm aware they're both CLI capable).

Evenmore endusers have reported, they would feel more comfortable with a TUI
script, rather than a regular script.
In the matters of: 'I have more chances to find the info i need'.

However, TUI would not be a TUI without its 4 core displaying modes.
* tui-printf (the absolute core, but not as powerfull as its name-cousin)
* tui-echo (like the other 4, first string left, 2 strings l/r,
* tui-title (borders, colored inbound, first string in center)
* tui-header (borders, colored outbound)

Its all written in bash, because its all it needs, with the exception of the

What's so special?
Ncruses is great, but its to compile.
Wiptail is nice, but its boxed.
But TUI... REALLY is for scripts.

==== Other Software Required: ====
* bash
* coreutils
* awk, grep, sed

Seriously, i have to provide you those licenses? ;)

==== Other Comments: ====
TUI is in the evaluation process to become part of the GNU familiy.
yay :)

It provides no binaries expect a tarball that contains a template directory
structure with some files for new projects.
