==============
SearchHTML updated to v0.4 - include or exclude HTML code from search!!

GetHelp Description
===================
The goal of this project was to make HTML format help documents easier to
contend with on the Amiga. Suppose someone has constructed help documentation
in HTML, complete with graphics, links to web sites, email addresses etc.
What is actually a single document traditionally arrives as a multitude of
smaller files - HTML pages and images.

The end user doesn't need a bunch of small files, the browser does...
Your filesystem will love you as you have cut down a multitude of small files
into just one archive. GetHelp will unarchive and cache all the small files to
Ram:T as you open them, then delete them when you've finished.

The GetHelp system allows you to use an HTML document like an Amigaguide
document - a single hypertext help file. Because its compressed, a GetHelp
file will generally be much smaller than the equivalent Amigaguide file.
Try constructing a '.help' file from an Amiguide document that has been
converted to HTML using GuideML or equivalent tools. My PCDoom_FAQ.guide (386kB)
has been trimmed to a PCDOOM_FAQ.help (222kB). 

Gethelp also opens the door for a comprehensive hypertext based help system on
the Amiga, referencing each document with a single click and navigating in a
browser environment - see the included examples!

SearchHTML
----------
All browsers allow simple text search of the currently displayed file.
This release includes a global document search utility which will generate
a list of files which match your search parameters.

Installation and notes
----------------------
There is no installer required for this installation, just follow the
instructions in the HTML documentation. Take care to note the limitations
section. Once GetHelp is installed and your browser configured, you will be
able to access "GetHelp.help" from your browser instead.

C Source for SearchHTML is included in the hope a C guru will critique /
improve it for me!! Any suggestions welcome.(that goes for my arexx too!)
