[ 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.
