First, the good news. It is now possible to add
@seealso links in the documentation to old style classes such as
@audiorecorder. See changeset octave: 0ef88c485786
The links show up correctly in “plain text” format such as when using
help XXX in a command window. They also show up properly in the PDF manual and correctly hot link between sections of the manual.
Second, the bad news. I haven’t quite got
doc XXX to work. I could use some help here as it is probably a simple matter of adjusting the search term specified to match the
@anchor field in the Texinfo documentation.
For a test case, try ‘
doc @ftp/close’. This opens up a GUI documentation browser which says
The node you are looking for is at XREF@ftp/close.
If I then click on the hot link (
XREF@ftp/close) it takes me to the correct location in the manual.
So, the behavior is very close to desired, but I don’t want to have to go through the intermediate screen and have to click on the link.
Unfortunately for me, I don’t know the
libgui code well enough to determine where I could make a change to the search term in order to have it match what is in the GUI documentation index.
