Subclasses: Multiline_Output  


This widget displays a piece of text. The user may select portions of the text using the mouse and paste the contents into other fields or programs.

There is a single subclass, Multiline_Output, which allows you to display multiple lines of text.

The text may contain any characters except \0, and will correctly display anything, using ^X notation for unprintable control characters and \nnn notation for unprintable characters with the high bit set. It assummes the font can draw any characters in the ISO-Latin1 character set.
