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.
I just did a mini HAT/single-source "shoot-out" with some interesting
results that I'll be writing up as a brief article shortly. The upshot of it
is that, having done a quick evaluation of RoboHelp, AuthorIT, Flare,
Doc-to-Help and HelpStudio, I'm really impressed with Doc-to-Help. Results
with the rest of 'em were disappointing. If time permits, I'm also going to
give Help & Manual a try next week.
