Once I ran the program once and got an archive, I went to the
examples subdirectory in the distribution and lifted the
frames.rc file from there. Now, frames is the exact opposite
of the way I wanted to go. But that gave me a well-written
example to edit, and that is what I did.
As a suggestion, I am willing to include example resource files
contributed by users. Therefore, if anyone has a resource file that
may be instructive/useful to other users, I can include them in the
examples directory of the distribution.
Take a walk, and when you come back go back to the document and
be sure to visit the page for the RCFILE resource. I applied
the .rc file with a command line parameter
Al is right in that the page on RCFILE is good to learn about mhonarc
resource files and how resource variables are used.
I agree the documentation can be intimidating. I will admit that it is
not complete, even though there is alot. A user's guide/tutorial would
be very useful. Unfortunately, writing documentation takes much time,
and writing good documentation even takes longer. Sometimes updating
the documentation to reflect a change in mhonarc takes more time than
I will be glad to include any complementary documention from others
if anyone do desires. For example, if someone writes a tutorial,
I can include it with the distribution. Contributions can be as
simple as a single page that discusses a particular topic to as
complex as a multi-page user's guide. Some of the stuff Al has
posted has been quite good. Maybe that material can be combined
in a useful document(s).
