CWHelp Class

A WPS class to that allows you to display help from any program or script in a much simpler manner than is offered by the OS/2 help system. You simply use setup strings to display a help panel.

Chris Wohlgemuth originally wrote this class to add real online help to programs developed using the DrDialog REXX GUI frontend, but that package doesn't give access to the help facility so the only available option for him was to use *.inf files and the view command instead which is a bit klunky if the development software does not support it. Although all the examples provided with the package are written in REXX, the class is completely programming language independent and can be used with any human language.
