    At www.digitalmars.com there is the compiler help. Unfortunatelly it is
not downloadable (you only can download the PDF files, which are unpractical
as a reference).

    Have you considered generating a CHM o HLP file with the updated help?
The CHM should be an easy step, since you have the HTML files in the web.

I don't know what CHM is. All the .html files come with the CD version of
the compiler. The pdf versions will get dropped (as they are obsolete).

    CHM is something like Compiled HTML, there is a lot of software to
convert a set of HTML files into a CHM.
    The main advantage of CHM files is that you can search inside all of
them, and the savings in disk space.
    As a example refer to http://www.php.net/download-docs.php, and get some
CHM docs.

Thanks! But disk space is not too much of an issue here, and there's already
a search engine.
