Every time I attempt to create an index, I get the
following error message:

Scrollbar property out of range.

    The index generation script MakeIDX.pl works with the html
    documentation generated from the pods shipped with standard
    perl distributions.

    If you want to invoke html documents with another internal
    structure, then you must change the parsing algorithm of
    MakeIDX.pl to work with the new structure.

    Like it or not, ActiveState IS the standard perl
    distribution for Windows. Even if not, is is certainly a
    standard. I would be happy to modify MakeIDX.pl to fit some
    mysterious plan---could you give me a clue or is it self-
    explanatory?

    Yes, of course, ActivePerl is a standard perl distribution -
    but what version do you use ?

    Another user informed me about problems with ActivePerl
    build 522, released 2 years ago I think. I have *not*
    tested the IDE with this release...

    However, the index generation script MakeIDX.pl is located
    in the Help subdirectory of your Open Perl IDE directory
    and it's open for modifications after you've removed the
    second line of it (AUTOGENERATED...).
    The strategy of MakeIDX.pl is quite simple:
    It takes a list of html files, searches each one for <a
    name=...> - tags and writes these to a keyword file; that's
    all !
