Subject:Porting What's This? help to UNIX From:Mary Horodyski <mary -at- INFOLYTICA -dot- QC -dot- CA> Date:Wed, 7 May 1997 13:44:56 EDT
I am building an online help file with RoboHELP 4.0. The development
environment is Visual C++. Our first release is for PCs, but we will later
port to UNIX via MainWin. The help file is supposed to be easily ported
by MainWin, but we are now worried about the .dll that RoboHELP provides
to call the What's This? context-sensitive help.
1. Has anyone used the RoboHELP What's This? Help Composer and then ported
the help to UNIX?
2. What are people doing about this "Windows 95 What's This? Help" convention?
