Personally I don't know anything about .hbd files :(

Please could you explain what are and what you expect by opening they ?

If your expectation is gather documents / info on Harbour, did you tried \Harbour\extras\hbdoc\hbdoc.exe ?

files.hbd are the harbour docs.
If you are trying to read them, then,
you can use hbide
or getting the harbour doc folder with the files.txt

HI Esgici

Hbd files contain all the txt files with text enclosed between $DOC$ and $END$. These .txt files are in the different harbour folders. No luck for Undocumenteds :(
In the harbour (binary) folder you'll find only .hbd for those contrib that has some docs in the svn.
There are so many undocuments functions :cry:
Is there a way to get a whole documentation ?
The hbd has a format that enabled us to build htm, pdf, etc.. . I don't know if exist a tool to do this. Time ago I made something for hmg4 docs but is not strictly for harbour.

Hi :

In the directory \ doc are files with the extension *. HBD. Which
program should I use to open these files?

.hbd files are compiled, distributable form of NF docs.
They can be read/written by internal HBDOC API in Harbour core.

Currently HBIDE uses this API and .hbd files.

This is the only function you need to use:
__HBDOC_LOADHBD( <cFileName> ) -> <hbdoc> | NIL

Returned hbdoc is an array of hash tables, each
hash contains the doc items, f.e.:
hbdoc[ 1 ][ "NAME" ] -> "EVAL()"

That's only API you need to know, the actual on-disk
format is also handled by this internal API.
