Many thanks everyone, xmessage -file xxx seems to work, It seems to take
the formatting from the file and not have a problem, strange it can't
take it directly from "" however will remember this workaround.
Want to try something more adventurous however am stuck on something
soooo simple, how do I generate a new line in xmessage
I got round it with echo
echo -e "hello \n everybody"
xmessage "hello \n everybody", takes it literally, all on one line
I checked man xmessage but there is no corresponding "-e" enabler
Any ideas ?
