About context-sensitive help
The help system provides a simple mechanism for associating
windows and other widgets with help text files.
The help system uses the following abstractions:
A unique symbolic tag generated by the help system that is used to
associate help with a window or widget. (This sum is
based on the full widget name, which can be quite long
and identifies its location in the widget tree).
The hierarchical arrangement of widget sums of a SCO Visual Tcl application.
A database file that associates widget sums with text files.
A help topic file associated with one or more widget sums.
A directory that contains all the help files for a manager.
