[ I apologise if I sound frustrated with you, but it probably is because I am. ]
* fpdoc is well documented. So usage should not be a problem.
* LCL, fpGUI etc all come with easy scripts to generate the class documentation
in various formats.
* RTL, LCL docs come as pre-built binary help for your convenience, but you can
build them yourself too. That too is documented.
* Docview (binary release download) includes the docview.inf help
file, describing in
detail every feature of docview (thus help on help). It even
includes a section called
"For Authors and Developers", where it again explains in detail how
to use the IPF
Compiler to compile your IPF help source into binary INF help files.
THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE!
