This ARexx macro will copy the OS 3.5 HTML manuals from your OS 3.5 CD to your
harddrive, splitting the manuals into chapters as it does so. The indexes and
tables of content are also updated.

Note that the original HTML documents are stored in four different formats,
requiring this macro to be fairly specific to this version of the docs. The
conversion of the Workbench manual takes about 27 minutes by itself, most of the
time spent converting the document to a standard format. I can't guarantee the
conversion process will work with non-English versions of the documentation.

WHY: Keep your browser from fainting at the prospect of loading 1MB HTML files
     Speed up access to the parts of the manual you're interested in
     Allow you to correct the numerous mistakes in the HTML docs

WHY NOT: You don't have 3.5 MB of free disk space
         You don't have a legal copy of the OS 3.5 upgrade

REQUIREMENTS: A legally obtained OS 3.5 upgrade CD
              OS 3.5 installed
              3,474,427 bytes of free disk space
              About 40 minutes. On a 25 MHz -040:
                 It took 4.55 minutes to convert the arexx manual.
                 It took 9.37 minutes to convert the dos manual.
                 It took 0.76 minutes to convert the harddisk manual.
                 It took 0.31 minutes to convert the installation manual.
                 It took 27.20 minutes to convert the workbench manual.

USAGE: From a shell, type: rx <path>SplitOSDocs.rexx
       Two file requesters will appear
          The first one asks for the original (CD) files
          The second one asks for the destination directory
