I recently discovered a little program called DevHelp. It is a
documentation browser, initially for Gnome developpers. But it's
simplicity and flexibility made it become a general documentation browser.
Several books are available for DevHelp, such as MySQL, Gtk+, SDL,
Emacs, Atk, Pango etc.
I was wondering if someone was planning to convert the Lua manual into
the Devhelp format. If not, I'll be pleased to do so !
Tell me if you're interested :)
I didn't knew that program. It strongly looks like Microsoft's HTMLHelp (CHM files),
with the advantage of being human readable/editable, and the inconvenient to be
uncompressed, needing subdirectories to manage, taking quite some room and being
harder to move around.
Beside that, it seems like a good idea. I wonder if there is a Windows version, or if
DevHelp files can be easily converted to CHM format...
While trying to answer myself this question, I found an interesting message:
