The HELP System is a collection of programs which provide an interactive online documentation facility. Data for the facility is prepared as a conventional text file which is formatted in an outline form, as follows: 0 Topic-Name
1 1st-Level-Subtopic ... 9 9th-Level-Subtopic 1 2nd-1st-Level-Subtopic ... 1 3rd-1st-Level-Subtopic ... 0 Next-Topic ... The level numbers do not have to be consecutive, and the lower the level number is, the higher its entry appears in the hierarchy (level 4 elements appear before level 6). There may be as many topics at each level as desired. A line containing only a dot (.) character causes a break between screens when the help file is displayed to the user: this line appears on one screen . this line appears on the next screen (at the top) The HELP System consists of three programs: HELP, HELP_BUILD, and HELP_ANALYZE. The HELP program is used to display information contained in a help file. This information is in the form of a direct-access file created by the HELP_BUILD program. Briefly: text of help file V HELP_BUILD V direct-access help file V HELP displays info to user The HELP_ANALYZE program displays the structure hierarchy of a direct access file which is created by HELP_BUILD.
