Subject support program documentation
Date Mon, 08 Jan 2001 21:55:21 GMT
At the moment, almost none of the support programs included with Apache
are documented in the manual.  However, most of them do have man pages. I
think that we should add a section or link on the front page of the manual
for "Support Programs" which will include


(Perhaps a few of the small perl scripts like log_server_status,
log_resolve, and split-logfile, should be grouped under an "other" page.)

The question is how to do this without creating a bunch of duplicate,
difficult to maintain docs.  We could just use "man2html" to convert the
man pages, but this program creates horrible HTML, and would require
hand-tweaking of the output in any case. I don't think there is any way of
avoiding the fact that future changes will need to be made both to the man
page and the html docs.

Any ideas?
