Run the dthelptag command as follows:
dthelptag command-options volume parser-options
Where command-options are options entered before the volume name and parser-options are options entered after the volume name. "Processing HelpTag Files (dthelptag)" lists all available options.
The following command processes a help volume named MyVolume:
Using the -verbose option causes the progress of the processing to be displayed on your screen:
dthelptag -verbose MyVolume
Adding a search path enables HelpTag to find files stored in a subdirectory (of the current directory) named graphics:
dthelptag -verbose MyVolume search=graphics
Here's a sample helptag.opt file showing that each option is on a separate line. It would be appropriate for creating a draft version of the volume.
memo onerror=go search=graphics/ search=entityFiles/
Before producing the final version of the help volume, you would remove the memo and onerror=go lines.
Chapter 13, Preparing an Installation Package, explains which help files are included in your application installation package.
