With a little experimentation I got it: 

    notes \
        "- To test for a successfull installation, execute the tool by typing \"cad2fbd\"" \
        \n \
        "-> some usage information should be displayed" \
        \n \
        "- The file result.fbd should be opened with the cgx parameter '-a' (auto)" \
        \n \
        "  cgx -a result.fbd"
