I'm trying to set up the Mathematica GuideBooks in the HelpBrowser. I would prefer not to install them to a system directory. But that may take more effort than I am interested in expending right now. If someone can tell me how to accomplish this effectively with a minimal amount of effort, I'd be grateful. I'm also having a bit of a problem getting the installation commands in Appendix B working. In particular, the following two inputs seem to produce an incorrect result. In[n]:=toRelativePathName[dirName_] := StringTake[dirName, # + {1, -1}]& /@ (Partition[#, 2]& @ Flatten[{0, StringPosition[dirName, pathNameSeparator], StringLength[dirName] + If[StringTake[dirName, {-1, -1}] =!= pathNameSeparator, 1, 0]}]) In[n+1]:=helpBrowserAddOnDirectory = toRelativePathName @ Select[FileNames["*", $InstallationDirectory, Infinity], StringMatchQ[#, "*Documentation*English*AddOns"]&][[1]] Out[n+1]:={, usr, local, Wolfram, Mathematica, 5.2, Documentation, English, AddOns} There should be a '/' at the beginning. That should be easy to fix. I'm just wondering what the result would be on, say, a Windows system. -- The Mathematica Wiki: http://www.mathematica-users.org/ Math for Comp Sci http://www.ifi.unizh.ch/math/bmwcs/master.html Math for the WWW: http://www.w3.org/Math/
