 menu A scrolling list of menu choices with single entry selection

 message Similar to the yes/no box, but with only an "Ok" button
 text A scrollable text box that works like a simple file viewer
 info A message display that allows asynchronous script execution
 checklist Similar to the menu box, but allowing multiple selections
 radiolist Checklist style box allowing single selections
 gauge Typical "progress report" style box
 tail Allows viewing the end of files (tail) that auto updates
 background tail Similar to tail but runs in the background.
