This a very low-priority issue, since I think it’s existed for years and the students in my summer tutorial only noticed it this year:
The HTML viewer and in-menu help links are obsolete. If you use
New Htmlfrom within the TBrowser, by default it takes you to an referral page that points to a web page that no longer exists.
If you use the menus within the standard GUI (e.g., right-click on a function to alter the plot), the underlined question mark links also point to web pages that no longer exist.
Point 1 can be addressed by changing Browser.StartUrl in system.rootrc, but I’m not sure which new page I should use. While I’d like to point the students to a class list, the HTML renderer within TBrowser can’t fully handle a page like the current ROOT: Class List.
Is this something that is ever likely to be fixed? Or is it just too easy to do a web search on “
cern root axis SetRange” so there’s no point in changing anything?
