"""An entry which contains text
The text can be provided either in the node itself or by a command-line
argument. There is a level of indirection to allow multiple text strings
and sharing of text.
Properties / Entry arguments:
text-label: The value of this string indicates the property / entry-arg
that contains the string to place in the entry
<xxx> (actual name is the value of text-label): contains the string to
place in the entry.
Example node:
text {
size = <50>;
text-label = "message";
You can then use:
binman -amessage="this is my message"
and binman will insert that string into the entry.
It is also possible to put the string directly in the node:
text {
size = <8>;
text-label = "message";
message = "a message directly in the node"
The text is not itself nul-terminated. This can be achieved, if required,
by setting the size of the entry to something larger than the text.
