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

Package and Distribute Help

Your product package includes both the run-time help file (volume.sdl) and its graphics files. Additionally, you can provide a help family file that enables your volume to be viewed using the Front Panel Help Viewer.

If the help volume uses execution links, you should collaborate with the author to include the appropriate execution link resources in your application's application defaults file. Chapter 13, Preparing an Installation Package, discusses which help files are delivered with your application.
