GUI requires an AmigaOS at least 3.5 with Reaction.
This includes 3.9 and 3.2, but not 3.1.4.
CLI should work on 2.1.

AmigaGuide to HTML file converter, with lots of features including:

  - 100% C, no compiled ARexx stuff or anything like that.
  - PPC native for OS4, incredibly fast!
  - Source code is included, under GNU General Public Licence.
  - Converts any AmigaGuide compliant documentation into a multi or single-
    file HTML 4.01 Transitional document (UNIX and MS-DOS compliant)
  - Can link correctly to external AmigaGuides
  - Supports Amigaguide  at macros
  - Fully supports  at next,  at prev,  at toc,  at help and  at index command
(e.g. for
    TexInfo based guide files)
  - Supports font style ( at {B},...) and colour ( at {FG ...}) commands, with
    CSS style sheet support and configurable colours
  - Detects Internet (http, https, ftp, mailto, ...) links
  - Detects E-Mail addresses
  - Navigation bar with "CONTENTS", "INDEX", "HELP", "RETRACE", "NEXT",
    "PREV" and "HOME" buttons (also as footer if you like)
  - Navigation titles freely changeable. You can also insert images!
    (A free set of images will automatically be generated.)
  - Navigation bar can be switched off, and/or you can have a Site
    Navigation Bar (supported by Mozila)
  - The <body> tag is changeable, and you can add header/footer text
    to every page
  -  at WORDWRAP and  at SMARTWRAP guides convert correctly
  - MS-DOS file suffix is generated optionally (.htm)
  - Lots more!


V3.17 (30.12.2022)

* Add basic support for  at {system command with openurl command.

* Add colour theme management with new light and dark colour themes in addition
to the default AmigaGuide compatible one.

V3.16 (01.10.2021)

* Use locale.library to convert node names, this should remove accents from
characters for better compatibility.  Note: Requires locale.library v38+, so
command line now needs OS2.1 minimum.

* Add basic support for OS3.2's  at {img command.

* Fix some deprecated calls under OS4.

* Fix wrong icon when saving defaults.

* Fix "Main" node incorrectly being suffixed in single file HTML.

* Toggled default off for Mozilla navigation bar as it is very obsolete.

V3.15 (21.06.2008)

* It is now possible to blank out navbar labels to prevent certain links from
being shown.

* A tab between the node name and title was not being recognised as whitespace.

* Macro arguments not enclosed in quotes would crash GuideML.

* GuideML did not always pick up the line number in links.

V3.14 (10.05.2008)

* Fixed various aspects of single file creation: line numbering, links to
  external documents, nodes with names which start with "main", tidy up of
  anchor names, now creates files called <guidename>.html in the specified
  directory instead of main.html.

* Input file requester now has a hook function to detect AmigaGuide files
  instead of relying on the name only.

* Fixed some memory leaks

* Reversed the order the macro list is searched (local macros now get

* Fixed the NUMBERLINES tooltype

V3.13 (04.05.2008)

* Added macro support.  AmigaGuide commands within macros will be
  translated to HTML as expected, and macros within macros are allowed,
  as are macros with arguments and both local and globally defined macros.
  You can also use macros to replace AmigaGuide commands as per the
  AmigaGuide specification.

* Added line number links support.  You need to enable adding line
  numbers to HTML files with the NUMBERLINES/Number lines in HTML option
  as it makes the files bigger for no benefit if you don't use line number

*  at font is now supported (as global and local attribute).

* Added  at {amigaguide} command.

* Saving a project now uses a def_guideml icon if found, and uses the
  short forms of the command line arguments where available.

* Fixed "prepend ../" option, which wasn't working in all cases.

V3.12 (30.04.2008)

* Added "Prepend external links with ../" option to enable multi-file
  AmigaGuides to be converted, by converting each file into a directory
  named the same as the orignal file in lowercase.
