DESCRIPTION
       Curses::UI::Dialog::Question is a basic question	dialog.	This type of
       dialog has a message on it, a TextEntry answer box, and one or more
       buttons.	It can be used to have a user enter some answer	in response to
       a question.

       See exampes/demo-widgets	in the distribution for	a short	demo.

	   Set the title of the	dialog window to TEXT.

       o   -question < TEXT >

	   This	option sets the	question to show to TEXT. The text may contain
	   newline (\n)	characters.

       o   -buttons < ARRAYREF >

       o   -selected < INDEX >

       o   -buttonalignment < VALUE >

	   These options sets the buttons that have to be used.	For an
