documentation for off-line reading?

So far I was only able to find QNX documentation http://www.qnx.com/download/group.html?programid=20945 in PDF form, but are ther any ebooks available in either mobi or epub format?

 

Also I found nothing for offline reading on actual NDK development.

 

Of course I could use briliant IDE Help to "print selected topic and subtopics" and then try to remove redundant bits from HTML, but perhaps someone already have done this job? I'd be happy to pay small amount of money for it.

Please use plain text.

You can always point wget or similar to the html documentation and make a local copy for offline browsing (some of these tools also convert the href links of the downloaded files to point to the local ones), for example http://www.qnx.com/developers/docs/6.4.1/neutrino/sys_arch/about.html or http://www.qnx.com/developers/docs/6.5.0/index.jsp

With that you can create an ebook and load it to your reader (IIRC an epub is only a zipped html with a metafile in xml explaining the forma)

Re: documentation for off-line reading?

In your NDK go to Help->Contents and you have loooots of off-line documentation including QNX and developing using NDK.

Re: documentation for off-line reading?

I meant not "off-line" as in "away from Internet".

I meant "off-line" as in "away from my desktop computer", and also without help application. For this some sort of ebook is needed. Granted I can spend many hours cleaning HTML from repetitions etc. and build one from supplied HTML into more readable form. I was hoping someone had already done that and is willing to either share or sale.

Re: documentation for off-line reading?

I second that. Having all docs as PDFs or zipped HTML - would be very helpful!

Re: documentation for off-line reading?

I have developed with QtCreator, and it has html offline documentation integrated. Qnx Momentics would have had this feature too. It's very useful if you aren't online.

Re: documentation for off-line reading?

Yeah, sure but it doesn't help much, because you cannot put that documentation on the Playbook and read it somewhere, where there is no internet access. That's why I wanted a Playbook with 3G but we don't have one.

Re: documentation for off-line reading?

Ok, but you don't develop with PlayBook. The majority of developers work with a laptop or a pc, and in this case, html or pdf offline documentation is very important when you're at places without wifi connection. I think. 

 

Thanks guys:Clap:

Re: documentation for off-line reading?

I need the same for Cascades and PB NDK. Help in Momentics is a bit outdated. I'll try to download webpage with winhttrack
