Senior Project - HELP!


An Automated HTML Help Builder and Runtime Display Engine

Senior Project: 1996-1997
Michael Barklage, David Davenport, Jason Kane, Daniel Nanto and Joshua Poley
Broomfield, CO

QSoft is a small development company which specializes in database and multimedia technologies. Often the need for online help documentation arises. As HTML is rapidly becoming the standard for document markup, online help is often distributed in the form of HTML documents. Unfortunately, the wide variety of web browsers currently available does not allow the user to index, search, and hierarchically organize tens, hundreds, or thousands of web pages. The goal of this project was to develop tools designed specifically for generating, viewing, and navigating HTML help documents. This involves the automated processing of HTML documents, creating tables of contents with drill-down capability, and adding advanced searching capability to quickly locate the document and position of desired information. Development was done in C++ for a Windows 95 environment using an object-oriented approach.
