View Ref-File[ Help Compiler Language ]

The source files for the help compiler contain blocks of separated
text, where each block defines one Help Window screen.
The syntax of each block follows:

<several lines of help window text>

The text of the help window will appear almost verbatim.
The exceptions to this are:

TAB key  Expanded according to the Help Compiler Options.
\\       Translated as a single \.
\EOF     Translated as 'Ə'.

\#       Used to mark the beginning and end of an external keyword.
         \#keyword\# will appear as keyword.

\link    Alias the shown text as another keyword.
         \link("keyword")alias\# will appear as alias
         but will pull up the 'keyword' screen.

\print   Write message to screen: \print("This text is written.")

\extern  No function; used as a comment.  Also \0 through \9.

Example: The following two help screens are linked together:

    Double-click the underlined text to go to the \#Second\# screen.

    Double-click \link("First")here\# to return.

Note: 'here' will not appear in the Index.

Also, the '\link' command cannot be used to alias a keyword which is
a context sensitive keyword from another help file.
