Thank you very much for your great job !!!
The new 5.14 documentation is a nice New Year gift for all of us.
May I ask you to enhance it a a little bit more?
Is it possible to create a permanent URL for each ROOT manual chapter?
Each time you update your doc that introduces a new chapter numbering one has to go through all his /her docs to adjust the links.
It is not convenient.
Is it possible to provide the dedicated “soft link” for each chapter?
ftp://root.cern.ch/root/doc/chapter29.pdf can eventually become
The link from that file to something like
and / or
ftp://root.cern.ch/root/doc/5.14/RootIn … hapter.pdf
would be very useful.
This will really simplify the job to maintain OUR ROOT-related documentation up-to-date.
Thank you. Have the happy holidays.
Yes, your proposal is reasonable and can be done. The last User’s Guide edition has no changes concerning the main chapters - the numbers used in PFD file names correspond to chapter numbers. I agree that names as “Histogram.pdf”, “Graphs.pdf”, etc. are better.
Thank you, Ilka
The file names of User’s Guide v5.16 were changed in a way to contain the chapter number and the chapter title. I hope this will help.
