mkhtmlindex - generate index files for HTML man pages
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 XFree86. In particular, the format of the
index files it outputs is not configurable, nor is the HTML formatting it expects of man-
