In addition to being able to read Help text that's been ported to a UNIX
platform, I'd be interested to know of any products that enable UNIX
developers to create context-specific links to a Help file. Simply having
access to an online version of the User's Guide isn't always enough. To be
truly user-friendly, a UNIX-based application should enable a user to press
a function key or enter a key sequence to bring up Help text that
specifically pertains to the current window.
Help files created with Doc-to-Help and RoboHelp provide Windows developers
with this capability. Do any products do the same for UNIX developers?
Note: I'm particularly interested in the Sun OS/Solaris and HP/UNIX
