More on help files

Could someone provide me with a list of the help files that have changed since 3.1.1.123? I'm currently running an English spell and grammar check on the help file and there is no sense in checking all of the pages each time. I will finish the checks on the 3.1.1.123 files and then all I have to do after that is check changed pages.

Edit: You can just email the list to me. All I need is the name of the HTML page.

... and there is no sense in checking all of the pages each time...

You can create some AutoIt script for it (decompile CHM, spell check all pages, write errors to LOG, ...)

so then you can check every new version with little effort :)

I already have the decompiler but with spell checking you have to show some caution. Some of the words that would return errors are actually code or things like GUI functions or macro's. Most of the latter 2 have already been written into the custom dictionary. Another area that could be dicey is the grammar check. I usually load about 6 pages at a time for checking and even then I have to carefully check any recommended changes. Edited by GEOSoft

If you look at Doc typos mentioned in my Collection of Doc typos #2

you will see that (most of) these kind of typos will not catch any automatic spell/grammar check.

Only human eye can see it.

But your work on improving Helpfile is welcome.

Thanks Zedna

See my reply to the post you linked to.

I'm just checking WinSetState.htm

WinSetState is a replacement for the badly named WinShow function. WinShow is accepted as an alias but this may be withdrawn in the future.

Is WinShow still accepted or has it already been withdrawn? If it's not valid then I'll remove that line while I'm at it. WinShow is so old that the line should probably be removed anyway.(JMHO) Edited by GEOSoft

WinShow probably still works, but I agree that it is probably old enough to remove from the docs.

Thanks CS.

I think I'll go ahead and remove it from that page (sorry Jon) because a large percentage of users won't even remember it and it's only good for compatibility with older scripts now.
