Hi,

this is a first draft of a Python script to create a HTML version of the gnuplot manual. This has several advantages over the existing (not working) method using latex2tml:

The file docs/doc2doc.c is used only to merge the terminal documentation with the main gnuplot.doc file. The actual script is docs/doc2html.py and works both with Python2 and Python3. The documentation is generated in the directory docs/htmldocs. The patch contains some changes in the files docs/Makefile.am and docs/plotstyles.gnu.

The script works fine, but some little bugs are still present.

At the moment I'm primarily interested in your opinions about the design, what could be improved, and some suggestions for better handling of the huge TOC.

Christoph

  • BTW the windows help converter doc2html.c would probably be a good starting point for a converter to plain HTML, too.
