data format .HLP Files used in pure pascal pure c

Post by charles »

what program generates/edits .HLP files ?
these are used within the pure pascal or pure c package from system Heidelberg ?
(but have seen them in other programs)

its not ascii or hyp format

No, its a propietary format. In the Pure-C package, there is a hc.ttp (help-compiler) that takes an ascii file with a special syntax, and generates HLP files from it. There is also a standalone pc_help.prg to view them. IIRC, similar programs are also part of Pure-Pascal.

Already English .hlp files and .hyp files floating around the internet for Pure C. I know this because my version of Pure C is 100% English. ;)

The *.hyp file version is also available online: http://tho-otto.de/hypview/hypview.cgi? ... arset=utf8

BTW the usage of its help compiler is also explained there...
