TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Single source is a process whereby you produce multiple outputs from a
single set of source files. For example, if you produce printed documents,
PDF files, and an online Help system from a single set of FrameMaker files,
you are using a single source approach. Likewise, if you produce three
distinct online Help systems--say, for clerical workers, managers, and
system administrators--from a single collection of Help source files, you
are also using a single source approach.
