What is Html2hhp?
Html2hhp is console-based application for Windows. It helps to
make conversion from one HTML file to HTML Help project. It is
fully optimized for MySQL(TM) manual.html file and
probably this will be the only application. See section
MyMan for already converted MySQL manual
and more information about HTML Help format.
You can use Html2hhp if you want to convert MySQL manual in
version you cann't (or don't want) to download here. If you
have HTHL Help Workshop installed, it is profitable to download
63 KB of Html2hhp and make conversion by yourself than to
download nearly 2 MB of converted manual.
The oldest sucessfully converted version was 3.23.2. When
converting older version Html2hhp can crash because the structure of
MySQL manual changes from time to time. Please let me know if
you should encounter such a problem.
Conversion step by step
download and unpack Html2hhp
run html2hhp.exe <source> <output_directory>
Source is the path to manual.html file. This file is located in
the Docs subdirectory of your MySQL installation directory.
The newest version can be also obtained from
Manual.html will be splitted into smaller files, one file per chapter.
As next there will be created table of contents and index. At the end there
will be saved images, stored as resources in html2hhp.exe, together
these files will be placed in the output_directory.
Version of MySQL to which the input_file belongs is determined from the first H1 tag.
- to get the .chm file you need to compile newly created HTML Help project file
(output_directory\myman.hhp) with the HTML Help compiler. If you have
HTML Help Workshop installed, just double-click this file and
choose Compile from toolbar or menu. Otherwise you must first
HTML Help Workshop and install it on your computer.
