select-help-files

Add installed help files to Epsilon's menu.

You can set up Epsilon for Windows to search for help on a programming language construct (like an API function or a C++ keyword) in a series of help files. First use this command to look for some common help files that may be on your disk. It will prompt for a list of drive letters, then show you the help files it found.

After you have an opportunity to edit the list of help files, the command then adds the help files to Epsilon's Help menu, to the context menu that the secondary mouse button displays, and to the list of files searched by the search-all-help-files command on the Help menu. Edit the file gui.mnu to further modify the contents of Epsilon's menus.

When you select a help file from the menu after running this command, Epsilon will open that help file. If you highlight a keyword first, Epsilon will look for help on the highlighted text. Otherwise, Epsilon will display the help file's table of contents or a list of keywords. (See the winhelp-display-contents variable for details.)
