sorry, I mean the "dialog" function in Linux. Right now all I see is the ability to output to a file, like when you have checklist values.

dialog --checklist "Choose topics:" 10 40 3 \
1 "first" on
2 "second" off
3 "third" off 2>file

"2>file" sends to a file named "file", but I'm wondering if this output can instead be sent to a variable within the bash shell.
