Abstract

Fully enabled context-sensitive help for the IBM PC is a method that allows a programmer to easily define context-sensitive help for personal computer programs, as well as permit users to tailor or translate help text according to their needs. There are three main parts to this method: A program that adds an index to a help file, a file that contains help text, and routines that extract help text from a file and display it on a screen.
