(:title Alpha documentation:)
As I mentioned on my personal page DonavanHall, I've switched careers. I don't have access to the web account above. Two years ago I moved most of the documentation to my personal site:
but a few months ago I switch web hosts and now those files don't exist anymore.
Click here [http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/alphatcl/Help/#dirlist] to browse the current Help documents included with the latest versions of AlphaTcl. If you want to suggest a new section (or contribute some Help text) to any of Alpha's Help files, please check out the Help.HelpTheHelpFiles page.
For any one interested in getting a sneak preview of the future of Alpha's documentation, Donavan keeps drafts and notes at the following url:
The above site is definately out of commission. It was running on the G4, OS X machine in my old office.
The Alpha Documentation Team is debating how best to implement Alpha's new documentation system. A record of sugguestions, ideas, and comments are provided on the Help.AIDE page.
The New Alpha Documentation
CraigUpright and DonavanHall are rewriting and updating Alpha's documentation. The following is a rough outline of proposed document sets. See also the Help.AIDENumberingScheme for how these document sets/projects fit in Help.AIDE.
1. Alpha Quick Start (What's up with the line wrapping?)[http://magnet.fsu.edu/~hall/docscripting/alpha/manual/quickstart/index.html]
2. LearningAlpha (I just need to get my dissertation written.)
3. Exploring Alpha (Adventurous Users)
4. Unlocking Alpha (Advanced Users/Developers)
5. The Alpha Cookbook
6. Alpha User's Reference
7. Alpha Developer's Reference
