dhelp: more help for wish
a third-party add-on help system for wish
UPDATE 1.2 RELEASED (1/26/04) ... more maps!
wish has a very nice html-based help system. so ... let's extend it!
i asked around to see what was MR's reaction to add-ins and received no definite response, so i decided to distribute this and see. please be aware that this all disappears instantly if i get any negative reactions from MR ... it is not my intent to do anything of which they disapprove.
there was one concern from marc & matthew at MR (hmmm marc & matthew, the m&m boys? i like that!) -- that any help additions will get wiped out each update. and so they will -- after each update you'll have to reinstall dhelp from the zipfile until i get time to write a better install tool.
i noticed that quite a few help pages were written by MR but unlinked from the main help page. many more were listed but never created. i am presuming it's just lack of cycles that prevents MR from editing/correcting/generating the necessary content (you mean the documentation slips if the code is not complete? inconceivable!)
at first, i wanted to replace the whole thing completely, but decided that was unwise. then i extended/linked their main help page ... but decided that was also unwise. so i would up adding a single "more help" from the main page. everything i added is linked from that more help page.
there are a half dozen newbie pages, four maps, and a few other pages with things like attribute dependencies, MOB color charts, etc ... just some references that i thought were useful. if anyone finds this useful, i'll keep add more content as days go by.
note that this will overwrite the distribution index.html file THAT YOU JUST BACKED UP
