    Program to create help files/ a documentation/ a manual


    Hi,

    weíve developed a large program for which we want to create help files/ a documentation/ a manual. (Similar as e.g. the help in MS Excel).

    Iíve already searched quite some time but I didnít find any tools running under SuSE. Does anybody know any software?

    First stop for a unix user are usually man pages.
    If your program is large, you might want to have multiple of them: explaining the binaries, conf files, etc

    Man pages consist of text and macros:
    HowTo: Linux / UNIX Create a Manpage
    Chapter 39: Creating and Formatting Man Pages

    Other than that:
    An active, up to date and structured wiki comes to mind. Like this: Home - Chef - Opscode Open Source Wiki
    as well as a well maintained webpage. One good example: Bacula Main Reference
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    What libs did you use to build the GUI? If QT, there are tools there for multi-lingual "help" etc.
