Q49576: Configuring On-Line Help for M 1.02
Article: Q49576 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.02 | 1.02 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 30-NOV-1989 The following is the correct way to configure on-line help for the Microsoft Editor (M) Version 1.02 for both MS-DOS (real mode) and OS/2 (protected mode). Copy files from the distribution disk, as follows: 1. Under MS-DOS real mode, copy M.HLP and MHELP.MXT to any directory specified in the PATH environment variable in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. 2. Under OS/2 protected mode, copy M.HLP and MHELP.PXT to any directory specified in the PATH environment variable in the STARTUP.CMD file. Also copy MSHELP.DLL to any directory listed in the LIBPATH variable in the CONFIG.SYS file. 3. For both DOS and OS/2, perform both the preceding steps. Other Microsoft products include .HLP files that the editor can read. If you want to add additional .HLP files to help, you must include the following tagged section in your TOOLS.INI: 1. Include the following tagged section: [M-MHELP] ; For DOS real mode [MEP-MHELP] ; For OS/2 protected mode [M-MHELP MEP-MHELP] ; For both DOS and OS/2 2. Add the following switch to load in the help files: Helpfiles: M.HLP .BAS:C:\QB\QB.HLP .C.H:C:\QC\QC.HLP .PAS:C:\QP\QP.HLP This is an example of help files that are loaded upon startup of M or MEP. Help searches QB.HLP first when the file has a .BAS extension, QC.HLP when the current file has a .C or .H extension, and QP.HLP when the current file has a .PAS extension. Please note that these help files come with their respective language, not M 1.02. For more information on this topic, refer to the Microsoft Editor for MS OS/2 and MS-DOS Operating Systems: User's Guide" that accompanies with M 1.02.
