I've posted a new context checking program, Context
Help, to the Gmutant and Onyx Graphics ftp sites.
It's also on my web page:

Context Help is similar to Great Help, but the user
interface is more flexible.

New Features:
-16-bit program (runs under Win3.x or Win95)
-Resizable window
-Find capability (search for text in header file)
-Moveable tabs (for those with long context strings)

If you use hex context numbers, hang on to Great Help
(Context Help wants decimal context numbers).

from the readme file...


Context Help is freeware for testing context-sensitive help files.
Context Help reads a header file (C-style), whose lines are of the form:

#define context_string<TAB>context_number

where <TAB> is the tab character, and context_number is an integer, e.g.,

#define this_is_a_context_string_that_is_pretty_long 3456

What Context Help is actually looking for is the <TAB>context_number
sequence, so if you have defined context-sensitive links in your .hpj
file, all you really need to do is to make sure you've got <TAB>s
between the context_strings and the context_numbers in the [MAP]
section of your .hpj file. You can open up the .hpj file in Context
Help and scroll down to the [MAP] section or just search for the
context string or number you're interested in.

Context Help is a 16-bit application, written and tested on Windows for
Workgroups 3.11, with winhelp.exe. It also works on WinHelp 3 files
running under Windows 95. We haven't tested it on WinHelp 4.0 files yet.
