This is source package for Cppreference C++ standard library reference documentation available at http://en.cppreference.com.

If there is no 'reference/' subdirectory in this package, the actual documentation is not present here and must be obtained separately in order to build the binary package. This can be done in two ways:

  1. Downloading a prepared archive from http://en.cppreference.com/w/Cppreference:Archives. This method is preferred.

  2. Running make source which will pull the documentation directly from the website page-by-page. You should not normally use this method. The download script is updated to take into account any changes of the website only when there's new release at http://en.cppreference.com/w/Cppreference:Archives. If the layout of the website has changed since the last release, the download script might not work. Also, it puts unnecessary load on the servers. Please do not use this method unless you know what you are doing.

Note, that abovementioned documentation is still a raw copy of the website and needs to be transformed in order to be suitable for local viewing. Three documentation formats are currently supported:

  1. Plain html documentation. Can be generated using make doc_html. The result of the transformation will be placed at the 'output/reference' subdirectory.

  2. Devhelp documentation format. Can be generated using make doc_devhelp. make install installs the documentation into proper locations.

  3. QT Help documentation format (.qch). Can be generated using make doc_qch. make install installs the documentation into proper locations.

Simply running make all will generate documentation in all three formats.

Running make release will generate the release archives which are uploaded to http://en.cppreference.com/w/Cppreference:Archives.


The package depends on 'wget' (>=1.15), 'python3', 'python3-lxml', and 'qhelpgenerator' for the generation of the documentation.
