Autodoc Viewer for AmigaOS 4.
-------------------------------
This program makes it easy to read Autodoc files on AmigaOS 4.
The program has a simple to use ReAction interface.

Usage
-----
Add directories containing autodoc files to the directory list in the preferences.
All files ending with .doc in the given directories will be listed to the left in the
main window.

Clicking a file name in the left-hand list, will load that autodoc file, and display
its contents. The different sections found in the file will be displayed in a list at
the top of the main window. The contents of the selected sections is displayed right
below that list.

One can search through the displayed text by using the "Find" function. (Search->Find,
or RAmiga+F).
It is also possible to search for files, sections or text in all the Autodoc files
known by the program.
Pressing Ramiga+S, or selecting Search->Search in the menu will bring up the Search
window.
When the search is completed, a list of matching files or sections will be shown.
Selecting a file or section
will load the correct file into the main window and jump to the desired section.

When viewing a file, double clicking on a library name or function name will attempt
to
open the autodoc file for that library or function.
