I got a new book linux programming beginners 3

Ok i got this book. Linux Biginners Programming. In it there is a command like this:

$dialog --msgbox "hello world" 9 18

when i try it in fedora 9 terminal I get the message that there is no command dialog.

can anyone help me ? do I download a packet or something to give me this command. I am learning how to program and this part of the book is before i go into c. It is shell programming.

Most probably it is dialog (yum install dialog) your sample script expects.

thank you

that did it.

follow up question any other books for someone getting into programming at home. I am in Japan and do not have the funds to enroll in a class. So basically i would like to learn c c++ basic every programming language I can to write my own free lance software.

I highly recommend Python to a new programmer. Also, Ruby, which has a similar intent, originated in Japan and is very popular there.
