No, ServerConfig/2 is not open source, its freeware. The .IPF format
which is used by OS/2 Help files is plain text and requires a special
compiler to turn it into a binary .HLP. Its very complex though and its
not easy to edit by hand. What do you mean what i have done?

Yes i did check it out, but an OS/2 program would require the OS/2 Help file
format, so that it can be called online via F1 etc. So it can't be actualy used like

But i guess an XML documentation which can be converted to HTML or plain text
is not a problem since i can then convert whatever i want to an OS/2 Help file.
