I need to have access to an application, let's call it "Stuff",
including its Documentation Center-style documentation, yet am unable to
install it in either $BaseDirectory or $UserBaseDirectory. And I'm
unable to change $UserBaseDirectory since the system is "locked down".
I'll put the application in a directory, say,
P:\AddOns\Applications\Stuff
somewhere else entirely.
I still want to evaluate
Needs["Stuff`"]
in order to make the application package's functions available.
That much is easy: append "P:\AddOns\Applications\Stuff" to $Path.
But how does one make the documentation available so that:
(1) there will be an entry for the package in the Documentation Center's
guide/InstalledAddOns page;
(2) the link on that page will still bring up the associated
documentation for the package;
(3) and of course all the internal links for documentation pages of the
application will work.
How?
Note that I am NOT asking how to write such an application or how to
arrange its files into subdirectory of Applications. The application
works just fine if, on an un-locked-down system, it is installed like
any other -- in a subdirectory Stuff of the Applications directory of
$UserBaseDirectory.
