Externals documentation

March 13, 2009 | 4:09 pm

I’d like to use externals documentation as is in Max 5 including not only the maxhelp patch but also the reference documentation.
I wrote xml file starting from standard Max externals documentation and it works fine but I need to edit manually _c74_contents.xml and _c74_ref_modules.xml files also.

Is it a good strategy?
Some one know if there is a different procedure to provide reference documentation without edit manually the _c74_contents.xml and _c74_ref_modules.xml files?

thank you

Jeremy mentioned awhile back that C74 planned to release a spiffy interface to this documentation system, and thanked us for our patience in the meanwhile.

C74 clearly has more pressing projects right now, but this is one pending element of the SDK that will be greatly appreciated when it finally emerges.

Thank you Eric,
waiting for the official documentation I built an installer that change _c74_ref_modules.xml including my reference folder.
Any suggestions for different strategy are appreciated.

Thank you again
