Common Desktop Environment: Help System Author's and Programmer's Guide

Help Family File

The desktop utility examines help family files to identify which help volumes are gathered into the browser volume. Figure 4-1 shows two help families, Common Desktop Environment and Overview and Basic Desktop Skills, listed in the browser volume. Each family file consists of one or more related help volumes. For example, the Common Desktop Environment family includes different volumes that describe the desktop.

Refer to the CDE Advanced User's and System Administrator's Guide for a detailed explanation of how an application and its help files are installed on the desktop.
