DocView is a documentation server for SCO OpenServer. It
creates a mini-website dedicated to serving most of the documentation
installed on a UNIX system. The documentation server is a separate
instance of an Apache HTTP server running off of a separate port
number (8457) so as to not interfere with any other web servers on
DocView makes available the
documentation to anyone with access to the DocView server,
using any web browser they choose.
DocView is initially configured to serve
all machines that have browser access to it on a network.
It can easily be reconfigured to serve
only to browsers running on the same machine.
``Disabling network documentation service''
for more information.
In SCO OpenServer Release 5.0.7, DocView replaces SCOhelp, the previous help
system based on the NCSA Mosaic browser and server. SCOhelp
and all supporting utilities (for example, ftindex(XC)
and scohttp(ADM)) are now obsolete.
The term ``scohelp'' and variants remain in some path and
filenames for backward compatibility with the SCOadmin
context-sensitive help system.
All current SCO OpenServer online documentation has been recompiled for
the DocView help system. If you have SCO OpenServer compatible software
with SCOhelp documentation, you can view that documentation by
following the "SCOhelp Home Page" link from the DocView home
