Subject:Re- Online help From:Jean Clougherty <jean -at- VITALIMAGES -dot- COM> Date:Wed, 5 Jun 1996 16:55:43 -0500
Melissa Hunter-Kilmer requested info about online help tools.
I have used a tool called HelpBreeze, by SolutionSoft, for producing on-line
help. Someone else at the company I was working for at that time had used
HelpBreeze and Doc-To-Help, and felt that HelpBreeze was better.
I also spoke to someone who used RoboHelp and was happy with it -- they said
they thought that RoboHelp had about a two-week learning curve. However, we
decided to use HelpBreeze for my project and I converted a small manual to
help in about 9 working days. So if it really takes about 2 weeks to learn
RoboHelp, then HelpBreeze must be a lot easier to use, since I learned it and
did a project with it in that time.
Now, here's MY request for help: I am looking for a tool for viewing online
documentation on a UNIX workstation. If you think you can help, see my
posting called "Wanted - Online documentation tool for UNIX" for details of
what we are doing. Thanks for any help you can give.
