Q: I'm too old/lazy/busy to learn yet another browser, and I despise
uGNUsable programs like Emacs. How in the world can I read the DJGPP
A: Info files are almost plain ASCII files, so you should be able to view them with your favorite text file browser or editor. You will lose the hypertext structure and you might have a hard time finding the next chapter (hint: look up the name of the Next node at the beginning of this node, then use the search commands of the browser, or the Grep program, to find that name), but other than that, you should be able to read all the text.
You can also produce pure ASCII files yourself, if you have their Texinfo
sources. These are usually called
should be included with the source distribution of every package. (You
can use the DJGPP server's downloading services, to download individual files.) To
produce an ASCII file
foo.txt from the Texinfo file
foo.txi, invoke the
Makeinfo program like this:
makeinfo --no-split --no-headers --output=foo.txt foo.txi
Makeinfo is one of the programs which come with the GNU Texinfo distribution.
If you prefer reading the docs through the Web, point your Web browser to the docs page of the DJGPP Web site.
The full documentation of the DJGPP C library in HTML format is available for downloading from the DJGPP server.
