To the best of my knowledge, there really isn't much out there for UNIX OnLine
Help.
If you want to do WinHelp type files such as ROBOhelp produces you could try a
product called HyperHelp but out by Bristol Technology.
A better bet however would be using HTML help files since most UNIX users are
net connected.
Finally, you could do what my product group has done and use an
in-house-designed Tcl/Tkl based help tool. We use ASCII based files for the
Context Sensistive help in the product then open the Acrobat Reader for
viewing/printing of Manuals.
In my opinion you would probably be best off using an HTML Help system since it
appears to be the wave of the future.
