       yelp, gnome-help - GNOME help browser

       yelp | gnome-help [--private-session] [--with-cache-dir=string] [gnome-std-options] url

       The  GNOME  help browser is a utility that allows users to view documentation for GNOME in
       several formats including man pages, HTML, SGML(DocBook), and GNU info files.

       The following options are supported:

       --private-session	       Use a private session.

       --with-cache-dir=directory      Specify which cache directory to use.

       gnome-std-options	       Standard options available for use with most GNOME  appli-
				       cations.  See gnome-std-options(5) for more information.

       The following operands are supported:

       url	       This allows you to view a specific help document by providing the complete
		       url to the documentation that you wish to view.

		       If url starts with "ghelp:", yelp opens the help document within ghelp.

		       If url does not start with "ghelp:", yelp attempts  to  launch  a  default
		       Internet  browser  window  and  display	the contents of the help document
		       within this browser window.

       Refer to the GNOME Handbook of Writing Software Documentation:


       To access the API documentation for including help in applications, you must  install  the
       developer version of the package.
