Enhanced HMG Help files

Post by Zimbo »

I have been updating the HMG help files that are installed in the C:\HMG.3.5\DOC\ folder as I have found this a useful way to develop my knowledge and also find it a helpful quick reference (especially if I have a compiler syntax error)!

Perhaps others might find this useful for themselves? Attached it a zip file with the new help files I have created (with links to the old files where they already existed). This will also create two new folders under C:\HMG.3.5\DOC\ - a \SampleCode folder and a \Images folder.

I have only changed one file that existed before - navigator.htm - but have made a backup copy which will also extract to the C:\HMG.3.5\DOC\data folder.

If I have "transgressed" any copyright, forum rules, etc by making these changes, please feel free to delete this post!!

However, if any one finds these useful, please let me know and I will upload future versions as I develop this further. It is NOT a priority for me - just something I do from time to time.

As ever, any feedback (good or bad) is welcomed.

Stuart (Zimbo)

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Make a backup of your data!
2. Unzip this ZIP file to C:\HMG.3.5\DOC\data
3. Open the HMG Help by double clicking on C:\HMG.3.5\DOC\hmgdoc.htm
4. Refer to C:\HMG.3.5\DOC\data\Release Notes V1.txt for release notes

If in any doubt, unzip this file to a temporary folder and then manually copy the contents to the
"C:\HMG.3.5\DOC\data" folder!

Thanks a lot for your humble contribution Stuart.
East or West HMG is the Best.
South or North HMG is worth.
...the possibilities are endless.

This update works for me in 3.4.4. I extracted the .ZIP's contents using the same path under 3.4.4.

Excellent work Stuart ! With photos and example code !
I come from the time when we learned everything by reading books and I use documentation a lot,
And your work is very helpful to me, I hope with time more about the new functions.
Really very grateful !

I don't know how to export multiple html files to a single PDF - which would be huge! And my skills with webpages aren't fantastic, so not sure how to build search functionality...

Thanks for all the comments. Glad this helps.
