<h3><a name="usage">I. Usage</a></h3>
These are typical things people do with THtml:
    root[] <a href="">THtml</a> html;                // create a <a href="">THtml</a> object
    root[] html.MakeAll();             // generate documentation for all changed classes
or to run on just a few classes:
    root[] <a href="">THtml</a> html;                // create a <a href="">THtml</a> object
    root[] html.MakeIndex();           // create auxilliary files (style sheet etc) and indices
    root[] html.MakeClass("TMyClass"); // create documentation for TMyClass only
To "beautify" (i.e. create links to documentation for class names etc) some text 
file or macro, use:
    root[] html.Convert( "hsimple.C", "Histogram example" )

<h3><a name="conf">II. Configuration</a></h3>
Most configuration options can be set as a call to THtml, or as a TEnv variable,
which you can set in your .rootrc.

<h4><a name="conf:input">II.1 Input files</a></h4>

<p>In your .rootrc, define Root.Html.SourceDir to point to directories containing 
.cxx and .h files (see: <a href="">TEnv</a>) 
of the classes you want to document, or call THtml::SetInputDir()</p>

  Root.Html.SourceDir:  .:src:include

<h4><a name="conf:output">II.2 Output directory</a></h4>

<p>The output directory can be specified using the Root.Html.OutputDir
configuration variable (default value: "htmldoc"). If that directory 
doesn't exist <a href="">THtml</a>
will create it.</p>

  Root.Html.OutputDir:         htmldoc</pre>

<h4><a name="conf:liblink">II.3 Linking other documentation</a></h4>

<p>When trying to document a class, THtml searches for a source file in 
the directories set via SetInputDir(). If it cannot find it, it assumes
that this class must have been documented before. Based on the library
this class is defined in, it checks the configuration variable
<tt>Root.Html.LibName</tt>, and creates a link using its value.
Alternatively, you can set these URLs via THtml::SetLibURL().</p>

If a class MyClass is defined in class mylibs/, and .rootrc
  Root.Html.MyLib: ../mylib/</pre>
<p>THtml will create a link to "../mylib/MyClass.html".</p>

<p>The library name association can be set up using the rootmap facility.
For the library in the example above, which contains a dictionary 
generated from the linkdef MyLinkdef.h, the command to generate the
rootmap file is</p>
<pre>  $ rlibmap -f -r rootmap -l mylib/ -d -c MyLinkdef.h</pre>
<p>Here, <tt>-r</tt> specifies that the entries for libMyLib should be updated,
<tt>-l</tt> specifies the library we're dealing with, <tt>-d</tt> its 
dependencies, and <tt>-c</tt> its linkdef. The rootmap file must be within
one of the <tt>LD_LIBRARY_PATH</tt> (or <tt>PATH</tt> for Windows) directories
when ROOT is started, otherwise ROOT will not use it.</p>

<h4><a name="conf:classdoc">II.4 Recognizing class documentation</a></h4>

<p>The class documentation has to appear in the header file containing the
class, right in front of its declaration. It is introduced by a string
defined by Root.Html.Description or SetClassDocTag(). See the section on 
<a href="#syntax">documentation syntax</a> for further details.</p>

  Root.Html.Description:       //____________________</pre>

<p>The class documentation will show which include statement is to be used 
and which library needs to be linked to access it.
The include file name is determined via 
<a href="">
leading parts are removed if they match any of the ':' separated entries in 

<h4><a name="conf:tags">II.5 Author, copyright, etc.</a></h4>

<p>During the conversion, 
<a href="">THtml</a> will look for 
some strings ("tags") in the source file, which have to appear right in
front of e.g. the author's name, copyright notice, etc. These tags can be
defined with the following environment variables: Root.Html.Author,
Root.Html.LastUpdate and Root.Html.Copyright, or with
SetAuthorTag(), SetLastUpdateTag(), SetCopyrightTag().</p>

<p>If the LastUpdate tag is not found, the current date and time are used.
This is useful when using
<a href="">THtml::MakeAll()</a>'s 
default option force=kFALSE, in which case 
<a href="">THtml</a> generates 
documentation only for changed classes.</p>

Authors can be a comma separated list of author entries. Each entry has
one of the following two formats
<ul><li><tt>Name (non-alpha)</tt>.
<p><a href="">THtml</a> will generate an 
HTML link for <tt>Name</tt>, taking the Root.Html.XWho configuration
variable (defaults to "") and adding 
all parts of the name with spaces replaces by '+'. Non-alphanumerical 
characters are printed out behind <tt>Name</tt>.</p>

<tt>// Author: Enrico Fermi</tt> appears in the source file.
<a href="">THtml</a> will generate the link
<tt></tt>. This works well for
people at CERN.</li>

<li><tt>Name &lt;link&gt; Info</tt>.
<p><a href="">THtml</a> will generate 
an HTML link for <tt>Name</tt> as specified by <tt>link</tt> and print 
<tt>Info</tt> behind <tt>Name</tt>.</p>

<tt>// Author: Enrico Fermi &lt;;</tt> or<br/>
<tt>// Author: Enrico Fermi &lt;;</tt> in the
source file. That's world compatible.</li>

<p>Example (with defaults given):</p><pre>
      Root.Html.Author:     // Author:
      Root.Html.LastUpdate: // @(#)
      Root.Html.Copyright:  * Copyright

<h4><a name="conf:header">II.6 Header and footer</a></h4>

<p><a href="">THtml</a> generates 
a default header and footer for all pages. You can
specify your own versions with the configuration variables Root.Html.Header
and Root.Html.Footer, or by calling SetHeader(), SetFooter().
Both variables default to "", using the standard Root
versions. If it has a "+" appended, <a href="">THtml</a> will
write both versions (user and root) to a file, for the header in the order
1st root, 2nd user, and for the footer 1st user, 2nd root (the root
versions containing "&lt;html&gt;" and &lt;/html&gt; tags, resp).</p>

<p>If you want to replace root's header you have to write a file containing
all HTML elements necessary starting with the &lt;doctype&gt; tag and ending with
(and including) the &lt;body&gt; tag. If you add your header it will be added
directly after Root's &lt;body&gt; tag. Any occurrence of the string <tt>%TITLE%</tt>
in the user's header file will be replaced by
a sensible, automatically generated title. If the header is generated for a
class, occurrences of <tt>%CLASS%</tt> will be replaced by the current class's name,
<tt>%SRCFILE%</tt> and <tt>%INCFILE%</tt> by the name of the source and header file, resp.
(as given by <a href="">TClass::GetImplFileName()</a>,
<a href="">TClass::GetDeclFileName()</a>).
If the header is not generated for a class, they will be replaced by "".</p>

<p>Root's footer starts with the tag &lt;!--SIGNATURE--&gt;. It includes the
author(s), last update, copyright, the links to the Root home page, to the
user home page, to the index file (ClassIndex.html), to the top of the page
and <tt>this page is automatically generated</tt> infomation. It ends with the
tags <tt>&lt;/body&gt;&lt;/html&gt;</tt>. If you want to replace it, 
<a href="">THtml</a> will search for some
tags in your footer: Occurrences of the strings <tt>%AUTHOR%</tt>, <tt>%UPDATE%</tt>, and
<tt>%COPYRIGHT%</tt> are replaced by their
corresponding values before writing the html file. The <tt>%AUTHOR%</tt> tag will be
replaced by the exact string that follows Root.Html.Author, no link
generation will occur.</p>

<h4><a name="conf:search">II.7 Links to searches, home page, ViewVC</a></h4>

<p>Additional parameters can be set by Root.Html.Homepage (address of the
user's home page), Root.Html.SearchEngine (search engine for the class
documentation), Root.Html.Search (search URL, where %u is replaced by the 
referer and %s by the escaped search expression), and a ViewVC base URL 
Root.Html.ViewCVS. For the latter, the file name is appended or, if 
the URL contains %f, %f is replaced by the file name.
All values default to "".</p>


<h4><a name="conf:charset">II.8 HTML Charset</a></h4>

<p>XHTML 1.0 transitional recommends the specification of the charset in the
content type meta tag, see e.g. <a href=""></a>
<a href="">THtml</a> generates it for the HTML output files. It defaults to ISO-8859-1, and
can be changed using Root.Html.Charset.</p>

      Root.Html.Charset:      EUC-JP</pre>

<h3><a name="syntax">III. Documentation syntax</a></h3>
<h4><a name="syntax:classdesc">III.1 Class description</a></h4>

<p>A class description block, which must be placed before the first
member function, has a following form:</p>
//                                                            //
// TMyClass                                                   //
//                                                            //
// This is the description block.                             //
//                                                            //
<p>The environment variable Root.Html.Description 
(see: <a href="">TEnv</a>) contains
the delimiter string (default value: <tt>//_________________</tt>). It means
that you can also write your class description block like this:</p>
   // A description of the class starts with the line above, and
   // will take place here !
<p>Note that <b><i>everything</i></b> until the first non-commented line is considered
as a valid class description block.</p>

<h4><a name="syntax:classidx">III.2 Class index</a></h4>

<p>All classes to be documented will have an entry in the ClassIndex.html,
showing their name with a link to their documentation page and a miniature
description. This discription for e.g. the class MyClass has to be given
in MyClass's header as a comment right after ClassDef(MyClass, n).</p>

<h4><a name="syntax:meth">III.3 Method documentation</a></h4>
<p>A member function description block starts immediately after '{'
and looks like this:</p>
   void TWorld::HelloWorldFunc(string *text)
      // This is an example of description for the
      // TWorld member function

      helloWorld.Print( text );
Like in a class description block, <b><i>everything</i></b> until the first
non-commented line is considered as a valid member function
description block.

If the rootrc variable <tt>Root.Html.DescriptionStyle</tt> is set to 
<tt>Doc++</tt> THtml will also look for method documentation in front of
the function implementation. This feature is not recommended; source code
making use of this does not comply to the ROOT documentation standards, which
means future versions of THtml might not support it anymore.

<h4><a name="syntax:datamem">III.4 Data member documentation</a></h4>

<p>Data members are documented by putting a C++ comment behind their 
declaration in the header file, e.g.</p>
   int fIAmADataMember; // this is a data member

<h3><a name="directive">IV. Documentation directives</a></h3>
<em>NOTE that THtml does not yet support nested directives 
(i.e. latex inside html etc)!</em>

<h4><a name="directive:html">IV.1 <tt>BEGIN<!-- -->_HTML</tt> <tt>END<!-- -->_HTML</tt>: include 'raw' HTML</a></h4>

<p>You can insert pure html code into your documentation comments. During the
generation of the documentation, this code will be inserted as is
into the html file.</p>
<p>Pure html code must be surrounded by the keywords 
<tt>BEGIN<!-- -->_HTML</tt> and <tt>END<!-- -->_HTML</tt>, where the
case is ignored.
An example of pure html code is this class description you are reading right now.
THtml uses a 
<a href="">TDocHtmlDirective</a>
object to process this directive.</p>

<h4><a name="directive:macro">IV.2 <tt>BEGIN<!-- -->_MACRO</tt> <tt>END<!-- -->_MACRO</tt>: include a picture generated by a macro</a></h4>

<p>THtml can create images from scripts. You can either call an external 
script by surrounding it by "begin_macro"/"end_macro", or include an unnamed
macro within these keywords. The macro should return a pointer to an object;
this object will then be saved as a GIF file.</p>
<p>Objects deriving from 
<a href="">TGObject</a> (GUI elements)
will need to run in graphics mode (non-batch). You must specify this as a parameter:
To create a second tab that displays the source of the macro you can specify
the argument "Begin_macro(source)...".
Of course you can combine them,
e.g. as "Begin_macro(source,gui)...". 
THtml uses a 
<a href="">TDocMacroDirective</a>
object to process this directive.</p>
<p>This is an example:</p> END_HTML
  TCanvas* macro_example_canvas = new TCanvas("macro_example_canvas", "", 150, 150);
  TArc* macro_example_arc = new TArc(0.5,0.32,0.11,180,360);
  TEllipse* macro_example_ellipsis = new TEllipse(0.42,0.58,0.014,0.014,0,360,0);
  macro_example_ellipsis = new TEllipse(0.58,0.58,0.014,0.014,0,360,0);
  macro_example_ellipsis = new TEllipse(0.50,0.48,0.22,0.32,0,360,0);
  TLine* macro_example_line = new TLine(0.48,0.53,0.52,0.41);
  return macro_example_canvas;

<h4><a name="directive:latex">IV.3 <tt>BEGIN<!-- -->_LATEX</tt> <tt>END<!-- -->_LATEX</tt>: include a latex picture</a></h4>

<p>You can specify <a href="">TLatex</a>
style text and let THtml convert it into an image by surrounding it by "Begin_Latex", "End_Latex".
You can have multiple lines, and e.g. align each line at the '=' sign by passing
the argument <tt>separator='='</tt>. You can also specify how to align these parts;
if you want the part left of the separator to be right aligned, and the right part
to be left aligned, you could specify <tt>align='rl'</tt>. 
THtml uses a <a href="">TDocLatexDirective</a>
object to process the directive.
This is an example output with arguments <tt>separator='=', align='rl'</tt>:</p>
END_HTML BEGIN_LATEX(separator='=', align='rl')#kappa(x)^{2}=sin(x)^{x}
x=#chi^{2} END_LATEX


<h3><a name="index">V. Product and module index</a></h3>

<p><a href="#THtml:MakeIndex">THtml::MakeIndex()</a> will generate index files for classes
and types, all modules, and the product which you can set by 
<a href="#THtml:SetProductName">THtml::SetProductName()</a>.
THtml will make use of external documentation in the module and product index,
either by linking it or by including it.
For the product THtml will include files found in the directory defined by
<a href="#THtml:SetProductDocDir">THtml::SetProductDocDir()</a>.
The files for modules are searched based on the source file directory of the 
module's classes; the (possibly relative) path set by 
<a href="#THtml:SetModuleDocPath">THtml::SetModuleDocPath()</a> will guide THtml
to the files.</p>

<p>A filename starting with "index." will be included in the index page;
all other files will be linked.
Only files ending on <tt>.html</tt> or <tt>.txt</tt> will be taken into account;
the text files will first be run through 
<a href="#THtml:Convert">THtml::Convert()</a>.
You can see an example <a href="">here</a>;
the part between "Index of HIST classes" and "Jump to" is created by parsing
the module's doc directory.</p>

<h3><a name="aux">VI. Auxiliary files: style sheet, JavaScript, help page</a></h3>

<p>The documentation pages share a common set of javascript and CSS files. They
are generated automatically when running <a href="#THtml:MakeAll">MakeAll()</a>; 
they can be generated on 
demand by calling <a href="#THtml:CreateAuxiliaryFiles">CreateAuxiliaryFiles()</a>.</p>

<h3><a name="charts">VII. Class Charts</a></h3>
THtml can generate a number of graphical representations for a class, which
are displayed as a tabbed set of imaged ontop of the class description.
It can show the inheritance, inherited and hidden members, directly and 
indirectly included files, and library dependencies.

These graphs are generated using the <a href="">Graphviz</a>
package. You can install it from <a href=""></a>.
You can either put it into your $PATH, or tell THtml where to find it by calling
<a href="#THtml:SetDotDir">SetDotDir()</a>.

<h3><a name="confvar">VIII. Configuration variables</a></h3>

<p>Here is a list of all configuration variables that are known to THtml.
You can set them in your .rootrc file, see 
<a href="">TEnv</a>.</p>

  Root.Html.OutputDir    (default: htmldoc)
  Root.Html.SourceDir    (default: .:src/:include/)
  Root.Html.Author       (default: // Author:) - start tag for authors
  Root.Html.LastUpdate   (default: // @(#)) - start tag for last update
  Root.Html.Copyright    (default:  * Copyright) - start tag for copyright notice
  Root.Html.Description  (default: //____________________ ) - start tag for class descr
  Root.Html.HomePage     (default: ) - URL to the user defined home page
  Root.Html.Header       (default: ) - location of user defined header
  Root.Html.Footer       (default: ) - location of user defined footer
  Root.Html.Root         (default: ) - URL of Root's class documentation
  Root.Html.SearchEngine (default: ) - link to the search engine
  Root.Html.Search       (defualt: ) - link to search by replacing "%s" with user input

  Root.Html.XWho         (default: - URL of CERN's xWho
  Root.Html.Charset      (default: ISO-8859-1) - HTML character set

<h3><a name="how">IX. Behind the scene</a></h3>

<p>Internally, THtml is just an API class that sets up the list of known
classes, and forwards API invocations to the "work horses".
<a href="">TDocOutput</a>
generates the output by letting a
<a href="">TDocParser</a>
object parse the sources, which in turn invokes objects deriving from
<a href="">TDocDirective</a>
to process directives.</p>
