desktophelp - IRIX Interactive Desktop(TM) Help System Subprogram
desktophelp is a program that is launched from the IRIX Interactive
Desktop(TM) Toolchest, under the "Help" menu. Depending upon which
version of IRIX you are running, the specific submenu item that launches
desktophelp is either "Desktop Help" (IRIX 6.2), "How Do I..." (IRIX 6.3
or 6.4), or "Quick Answers" (IRIX 6.5). desktophelp has the simple task
of posting a request to the sgihelp(1) process. If this process is not
already running, it will start-up automatically.
At the point sgihelp is invoked, desktophelp exits. sgihelp(1) then
displays a list of topics about the IRIX Interactive Desktop(TM).
Double-clicking on any available entry will display information about
that topic in the sgihelp(1) viewer.
For sgihelp to properly display the list of topics, the following
insight(1) books should be installed:
desktop_eoe.books.QuickAnswers_Help (required for IRIX 6.5)
desktop_eoe.books.HowDoI_Help (required for IRIX 6.3 and 6.4)
desktop_eoe.books.IRISEssentials (required for IRIX 6.2)
desktop_eoe.books.Desktop_UG (required for IRIX 6.3, 6.4, and 6.5)
