Publishing from your application

If you follow the rules and syntax of the Help & Manual XML Language you can generate Help+Manual projects directly from your application and publish them to any supported output format without ever opening Help+Manual.

This can be useful for producing things like automated program code documentation for which you do not need to edit the project in Help+Manual. Of course, you can also edit the projects you generate from your application manually with Help+Manual later if you want.

Note that Help+Manual Professional is required for this because the Basic version create uncompressed XML project files and its publishing capabilities for some of the features supported are also limited.
