Hollywood.guide: Add a link to the appropriate library node?

Post by bitRocky » Wed May 02, 2018 2:44 pm

It would be nice to have a link to the appropriate library section in every function of that library!

For example: the node "AddStr" of the "String Library" currrently looks like this:
@NODE AddStr "Hollywood Guide"

@{b}NAME@{ub}
AddStr -- append substring to a string

@{b}SYNOPSIS@{ub}
var$ = AddStr(string1$, string2$)

@{b}FUNCTION@{ub}
Appends "string2$" to "string1$" and returns the new string.

This function is obsolete and only here for compatibility reasons.
Starting with Hollywood 2.0 you should use the @{"string concatenation" LINK PrgOprStrng}
@{"operator.." LINK PrgOprStrng} for concatenating two strings.

@{b}INPUTS@{ub}
string1$ source string
string2$ string to append

@{b}RESULTS@{ub}
var$ resulting string

@{b}EXAMPLE@{ub}
test$ = AddStr("Hello", " World!")
Print(test$)

This will print "Hello World!"

@ENDNODE
I would like to also have a
@{b}SEE ALSO@{ub}
@{"String library" LINK LibString}
The advantage would be that, if you open the guide directly to show the node "AddStr", you could jump back to other functions of the same library!

Currently, I have to click on "Contents" to show the main node, that scroll down to the link of the "String Library".

Do you mean the AmigaGuide version of the manual? Because the HTML version has a navigation bar...

Yes, AmigaGuide.

I have a script in FlowStudio to open the AmigaGuide file showing the node of the function.

Sounds like a reasonable suggestion, I'll see what I can do.
