Automatic Help

 

SPL supports an automatic help facility. The text in the SPL file myfun.spl between the #if @HELP_MYFUN and #endif directives is displayed as help text when the user types help myfun. For example,

 

 

#if @HELP_MYFUN

 

MYFUN

 

This is a line of help text

for the function myfun

 

#endif

 

myfun(x)

{

    return(x*x)

}

 

Now, typing help myfun at the command line displays:

See the SPL files located in your SPL directory for examples of help text formats.
