mkhtmlindex - generate index files for HTML man pages
program generates index files for a directory of
HTML-formatted manual pages. It searches for files whose names are of the form
“name.1.html”, and outputs index files
“manindex1.html”, “manindex.2.html”, and so on,
one for each manual volume. Empty index files will be removed. Names and
descriptions are found by scanning the first <H2>
section of each
takes only one argument: the directory to process.
This utility is currently rather specific to X manual pages. In particular, the
format of the index files it outputs is not configurable, nor is the HTML
formatting it expects of manual pages.
The version of the mkhtmlindex
included in this X.Org Foundation release
was originally written by David Dawes wrote as a part of XFree86.
Colin Watson wrote this manual page, originally for the Debian Project.
