This tool is intended to be used by a _PreInstall_, _PostInstall_,
or _DEINSTALL_ script to display an informational message to the user.
The calling routine may indicate the maximum number of characters in
the user's typed response. The default, if not specified, is 40
characters. A prompt is displayed in a window, and the user must
respond to the prompt and then click on the _OK_ button to continue.
The _status_ environment variable is set to -1 if an error occurs
(for example, a window could not be displayed) or to 0 if the message
displays correctly. The user's response is written as a character string
to _stdout_ in the form:
where _n_ is the number of characters in the string that follows.
If _n_ is 0, the user entered a null response and no string follows.
There are no notes.
