"Recently after installing a library and accompanying
documentation, I had to dig into /usr/share/doc/lib-so and so only
to find the docs were in HTML and had an INDEX.HTML launched. It
was a Sunday and I had some time to burn so I surfed around a few
more of the folders in doc and there were a number of applications
and libraries that distributed their docs that way. It did seem
rather random which ones fit this pattern and which ones did not so
I wanted a cleaner way to view this documentation all in one place.
"As an experiment I wrote a little Python script called Idxer
(1.0 has been put under the GPL here) which does two simple things:
it walked the /usr/share/doc looking for any sets of documentation
with an INDEX.HTML file and it would output a simple HTML document
with links to all of your documentation."
