That's a lot of work, and you get a similar (more comprehensive)
result by searching at the online Documentation center.

On the other hand, it's TOO comprehensive, throwing up hundreds of
duplicated articles, items from packages I don't own, et cetera. Type
in "Euler equations" and try finding the article on
Calculus`VariationalMethods`, which includes a function called
EulerEquations. (Sure, if I already KNEW that...)
