answerbook2(1)                   User Commands                  answerbook2(1)



NAME
       answerbook2 - online documentation system

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/dt/bin/answerbook2 [-h]

DESCRIPTION
       The  AnswerBook2  server  product is no longer included with Solaris or
       the Solaris Documentation CD products. Solaris docmentation is now pro-
       vided  in  HTML  and  PDF  format  on the Documentation CD and does not
       require the AnswerBook2 server to be viewed.

       The answerbook2 utility opens the default web browser and  displays  an
       HTML page that shows a link to locally installed documentation, and, if
       the AnswerBook2 server has been defined, a link to AnswerBook2  collec-
       tions.

       To  define  a default AnswerBook2 server, use the environment variable,
       AB2_DEFAULTSERVER.

       This functionality is also accessible through  the  AnswerBook2  option
       on the CDE front panel Help menu.

       If  you  need  an  AnswerBook2 server, you can download the AnswerBook2
       server software from http://www.sun.com.
