NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     desktophelp - IRIX	Interactive Desktop(TM)	Help System Subprogram

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]


     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)
