Hi all,

Stefan And I have had intermittent discussions via direct email on
updating/ upgrading the TeXworks Scripting help files.

I just wanted to inquire if any one generally has thoughts on a good system
to produce those on  *Tex related or absolutely anything else at all really.

At present HelpNDoc is used, years ago they kindly gave us permission as an
OpenSource not for profit project, to use their help system production

It produces html, chm, and a pdf file.

I have been thinking to remove all extraneous material and focus upon the
TeXworks scripting API particualrly, with perhaps some general information
on how to incorporate shims for the JavaScript side to help people use the
more advanced feature of modern JavaScript,

Thinking that as the underlying Qt engine is not going to be updated by QT
for ever more frequent releases of  general JavaScript, this would give an
effective ability to maintain progress with EMCA's progress indirectly
through shims.

Truly I personally am committed to no particular course of action and open
to any ideas going forward.
Other than thinking: it would be good to open it up, so that others can
contribute material on a public platform.
I've just not yet been convinced by the documentation capability sides of
Git and like operations etc

Current material ...


Any way any suggestions appreciated please :-)
