       mkhtmlindex - generate index files for HTML man pages


       mkhtmlindex htmlmandir


       The  mkhtmlindex  program  generates  index files for a directory of HTML-formatted manual
       pages.  It searches for files whose names are of the form “name.1.html”, and outputs index
       files  “manindex1.html”,  “manindex.2.html”, and so on, one for each manual volume.  Empty
       index files will be removed.  Names and descriptions are found by scanning the first  <H2>
       section of each page.


       mkhtmlindex takes only one argument: the directory to process.


       This utility is currently rather specific to X manual pages.  In particular, the format of
       the index files it outputs is not configurable, nor is the HTML formatting it  expects  of
       manual pages.


       The  version  of  the mkhtmlindex included in this X.Org Foundation release was originally
       written by David Dawes wrote as a part of XFree86.
