Hello all!

I was following the thread on the moving target and read some comments about
having a database to create the documentation.

Database users, please enlighten some of us on:

* what programs you are using

* what you are putting in the database (procedures, definitions,
everything that goes in a manual?

* how you manage your screen captures with the database. Is there a
commercial program out there that manages all of this? (or do you all
have custom programs?)

* how do you compile the documentation from the database afterward (you
have text only and then import into Frame, etc?)

It seems to be a very interesting way of compiling manuals (at least it's a
good start) You could pick and choose chunks of text (SGML-like it seems)
and then create a whole.

So, how do you do it?
