Subject:Building HTML Help from a Database? From:Barb Tobias <barb -at- originlab -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Tue, 27 Mar 2001 12:08:18 -0500
I use Doc-To-Help to create compiled HTML Help for our software product.
However, I'll soon need to document a considerable amount of
programming-related information (C++ like classes and functions). I would
like our development staff to be able to directly document the programming
information, preferably in a database. This would ensure accuracy and also
provide a simple way for developers to update information. I'm hoping there
is a tool available which can convert database information such as this to
HTML Help. Does anyone know of such a tool? I'm not set on the type of
database I use.... just that I think this would be the easiest and most
sensible long-term solution for this type of documentation project.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
