Windows .HLP for most of the gnu-win32 information? Not as far as I know there
Besides, unless someone is going to tell me different, you can't read .HLP files
from the gnu-win32 side. Without being rude, .HLP's can't be all that good
even Microsoft are moving away from them in favour of a variant of HTML(XML?)
Side thought: Is the .HLP format readily available? If not, then it would be
useless as an information delivery method. I prefer HTML since it is wide open
