Holidays are getting to their end, given the reducing amount of
'Out-of-office' replies ...

Anyway, as usual tons of usefull replies:

Nearly unanymous : use "xmessage" (
Other suggestions : use "/usr/dt/bin/dtksh" altough I haven't found any man
page of it, and Tcl/Tk scripting.

I guess I will go for the "xmessage" thing.

Thanks all !

Subject: CDE popup confirmation window

I want to build a script from which I can make a small confirmation window
popup on user's CDE-desktops, even in all their workspaces, but cannot find
anything on Internet or man pages.
Anyone knows about any utility that can display a small window with a text
and an "OK" button on a CDE-display ?
