Keith:

I went through this investigation last fall, and my group decided on
HyperHelp. They really have no competition for what they do, and they
do it very well.

If you need info on HyperHelp, why I chose it, etc, I would be glad to
share that info with you.

Subject: Online Help/Doct Tools For UNIX-based software

Hello everyone

Our department is embarking on the design of an online documentation
and help
system for software products with Motif-based GUI interfaces running
under UNIX
(HP-UX 10.01 on Hp workstations). Currently we develop paper-based
documentation
using Framemaker. We are now looking for information on a suitable
tool for
developing online documentation and help.

There seem a lot of tools around for developing online
help/documentation for
Windows-based systems, but so far I've only been able to identify two
products
which might be suitable for use with Motif i.e. HyperHelp from Bristol
Technology and Frameviewer. The latter on investigation turned out to
be
prohibitively expensive.

Can anyone suggest some leads? I'll be very happy to put together a
summary
of results for anyone who is interested.

Best regards
Keith Posner
