help_plugin documentation query on Linux
« on: February 20, 2022, 02:30:27 am »
On Linux C::B does not include the C::B manual. Is there a reason for this, besides it needs to be in PDF for Linux? (This assumes the end user has a PDF viewer)

Linux could include the CHM files, but the end user would need to install a CHM viewer like one mentioned in the following article:

I tested xchm on XUbuntu 20.04 and it works with the C::B manual.

I guess no one has ever thought about this. Also the manual is in a pretty bad state at the moment...

I have created ticket 1211 for this.

This was picked up in checking the output from the MSYS2 bootstrap/configure/make process against the nightly build to see what is missing or created that should not.
