Thank you! I'll look into it. Probably we should finally replace the docs on the homepage with this one or at least provide both...

Here is a link to the full html version : here
You can also directly download the chm generated manual in English  here or the french one  here:D

PS : it may be necessary to unlock .chm files in the Windows file properties to be able to visualize their contents.

I'll have to find a way how to update this easily. I can only upload files one-by-one at the moment... :-/

I have been able to build the HTML, HTMlWeb, PDF and CHM documentation using the info in the post from gd_on.

I used basic-miktex as for the LaTeX conversions. I found in my setup that the issue with the graphics was caused by the default graphics including the width and height in the HTML file, which I changed by changing the following in the htmlweb.cfg and html.cfg  files as follows:

OLD:
\Configure{Picture}{.png}
NEW
\Configure{graphics*}{png}{\Needs{\string"\csname Gin@base\endcsname.png \csname Gin@base\endcsname.png\string"}%
          \Picture[PIC]{\csname Gin@base\endcsname.png}%

Instead of manually modifying the web HTML files to remove the TOC in the Web main_codeblocks_en3.html file I created copy of the main_codeblocks_en.tex and removed the TOC and used this for the web html generation.

I did not find a way of automating the CHM generation, so I used the HelpNDoc method.

Attached is my work in progress readme.txt file that I have updated with the instructions I used to generate the docs. The zip file contains the updated/new batch and tex files that go with the readme.txt.

This is the first time I have done any work with LaTeX and as such the changes may be totally wrong or correct, but I have no idea so let me know.

If this is reasonable should I create a ticket for getting the files into the sourceforge SVN doc repo?

Cool.
May be you could add your modified .cfg files.

Attached is an updated ZIP that includes the two config files and readme.txt files now.

In a few weeks when I have some time to work on C:B:B again I will have a look at the building under windows section and see how I can update/enhace it so it is up to date and new developers can follow it to build C::B under windows instead of searching the WIKI and maybe hitting a good page or not. I may borrow some details from the wxPBGuide.pdf (https://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,24252.msg165332.html#msg165332) as it is easy to follow for building wxWidget on Windows or I may reference it for building wxWidget.
