way for shell script to show a string in notification area? [SOLVED]

I need a recommendation for a command-line utility that will show text in notification area. I am familiar with and love yad, but it can only put icons--not text--in notification area/system tray. I'm also familiar with notify-send, but this utility shows pop-up notifications, which is not what I need.

One of my shell scripts needs to show a string in the notification area, and the string needs to stay there until it is updated (similar to what time/date panel applet does). I've searched the interwebs ad nauseam but am still empty-handed.

Any ideas? I just need utility name, not a how-to.

Depending on yout definition of "notification area", dzen2 could be what you are looking for.

Yes, this is perfect. It doesn't display the string at notification area by default, but it allows specifying x and y coordinates of where to display the string.

Thank you very much for this, KatolaZ. Exactly what I needed!
