"setfunhelp" for non-Lisp functions?
« on: June 05, 2019, 04:56:05 AM »
Anamnesis / Prologue:

I have some external "apps", coded in some language (99% not in Lisp), and I have the relating help-files in CHM. Sadly there is no connection between the commands (e.g. "do_something_cool") and the help-file of this app.

Now I played around and made this

Code - Auto/Visual Lisp: [Select]
  1. (setfunhelp "do_something_cool" "C:\\Program Files\\supertool\\supertool.chm" "do_something_cool")

And - against all odds - it works fine. I start "do_something_cool" - press F1 - and get the defined help side.

Who has experience with this?
Does it work fine or did I open a door to hell?
