Re: [NTB] Help files in text format?
- Hi David,
Search the web for an old commandline program HELPDELCO. It will
convert HLP to at least RTF and then you can Save As... TXT (if
HELPDELCO doesn't do TXT).
You need to post over on the Off Topic list for more help with
it. Here are a couple command-lines I use... You can run it from
a Clip of course; ask on the Off Topic or Clips list about that. ;)
"F:\NoteTab Pro\Documents\Help\Help2Rtf\HELPDECO.EXE" "^?[(T=O)hlp file=F:\NoteTab Pro\ClipCode.hlp]" /r /s 1
"F:\NoteTab Pro\Documents\Help\Help2Rtf\HELPDECO.EXE" "^?[==_F:\NoteTab Pro\NoteTab.hlp|F:\NoteTab Pro\ClipCode.hlp]" /r
------------ Discussion mailing lists at YahooGroups ------------
You may sign up for the different discussion mailing lists from
either of the links below. We use YahooGroups for the lists.
_Please_ read the following if you decide to sign up to see what
list to send messages to; it is very important and please also
use a descriptive Subject: line! Delete text from your replies
that is not needed to understand your reply and keep the
conversation clean! :)
If you sign up for any of the discussion lists, please *_do not_*
post questions about NoteTab *Clips* and other scripting languages
(such as *RegExp*, PERL, etc.) on the NoteTab Basic list. Use the
Clips or Scripts list for them.
More difficult tasks should be posted on the Clips or Scripts
lists. HTML should be posted on the ntb-HTML list and off topic
discussion takes place on the ntb-OffTopic list. The MailBag
Assistant, Easy Thumbnails, Easy Imager, and Album Express lists
are for discussion of those programs.
The most important thing to remember is please leave the NoteTab
Basic list for the *_very basic_* use of NoteTab. The other lists
are a lot more flexible, for instance: Clips and RegExp can be
used and are welcomed on the HTML list. Thanks!!!
Discussion mailing list subscribing and un-subscribing:
If you are already signed up for the NoteTab Basic list, there are
links in the YahooGroups footer to get to the Clips and Off Topic

- Thanks, Jody!
Just to have everything correctly documented, in case anybody else
needs it, the name of the program is actually HELPDECO and its
homepage is http://www.geocities.com/mwinterhoff/helpdeco.htm . There
seems to be a GUI for it at
http://www.geocities.com/dipakauddy/freeTools.html , but I didn't try
It's not exactly what I asked, but many people who ask about a text
version of the help file will get along just as well with the NoteTab
Pro manual in PDF format at
