Tru64 UNIX® ODL Bookreader Getting Started
HP Tru64 UNIX Bookreader Online Documentation Library (ODL) for HP Tru64 UNIX
This document provides introductory information about the Bookreader Online Documentation Library (ODL) CD-ROMs. It provides general and platform-specific installation and user information for the ODL.
The Tru64 UNIX Bookreader ODL CD-ROM set (ODL-BKB) is an archive set containing documentation in Bookreader format only. This set includes:
These discs contain static documentation and will not be updated. As a result, documentation may not be the current revision. Setup and user information for the ODL-BKB is included in this document and in user documentation residing on each ODL-BKB CD-ROM.
Getting Started with the Bookreader ODL (ODL-BKB)
The ODL-BKB set consists of a single CD-ROM disc that runs on Tru64 UNIX platforms (ODL-BKB-UNIX), and a single CD-ROM disc that runs on Microsoft Windows platforms (ODL-BKB-PC).
These ODL discs use the Bookshelf Navigation Utility (BNU) as the primary interface to online bookshelves. Bookshelves contain links to documentation in Bookreader format. The BNU invokes the Bookreader viewer to display ODL documentation.
Installation instructions for both platforms of the ODL-BKB follow. For BNU system requirements and more detailed installation instructions, refer to the Online Documentation Library CD-ROM User's Guide, which is available online in the Getting Started bookshelf, and is available in PostScript and text formats in the [readme] directory on each ODL-BKB disc.
Note: Previous releases of ODL on native platforms required and/or provided other viewers (Netscape, Hyperhelp) for other file types. These are not required for the ODL-BKB discs. References made to these viewers in the Online Documentation Library CD-ROM User’s Guide do not apply to the ODL-BKB CD-ROM. Documentation is in Bookreader format only.
