For a while, EMX programmers have known that there is no cheap source of API documentation available for OS/2. Other programmers have lamented that IBM's documentation is not the greatest. This is not the best of situations, since there isn't much point in having a freeware compiler if you can't figure out how to program with it. There are some really great books out there, but for those who cannot afford these, this project's aim is to document the whole OS/2 C API, including structures and messages. A secondary goal would be to improve on the documentation found elsewhere.
Write the APIs up in text format, and I'll convert to the HTML format. If you feel ambitious, write it directly in HTML using any of the existing pages as a template. If you do write it in HTML, be sure to follow the template closely to minimize work. If you have anything to add, topic-wise, mail me. Write them with the following headings (verbatum, on a separate line):
If at all possible, please put items and their explanations on separate lines. This helps us to HTMLize and INFize it quicker, ie. do:
Let me know which APIs you want to write up, and I'll add your name to these APIs on the Index page so that we can avoid duplication. Make sure that you check first that noone has put their name on them already. When you finish them, send them to me, and I'll add them to the page. In fact, send them one by one as you get them done. This helps me to distribute the workload more evenly over my days.
Get going, and good luck!
