Lua interactive help

Copy ihelp.lua to somewhere in your Lua module path.

To get started:

$ lua -e "help = require'ihelp'"
> help()

To customize it for your application:

$ lua -l ihelp
> ihelp"customize"

and do what it says.

Alternatively, copy the help source into your own application and provide your own shorthelp string and longhelp table.

With an existing LDoc-compatible module, e.g. ml (Microlight):

$ lua -l ml -l ihelp
> ihelp(ml)

and take it from there.

The module used to be called help but it seems help.lua is a popular filename. Project homepage
