I think I've applied the patch successfully (adjusting manually
for the odd way some long lines came through), but I keep getting

Unable to load help files '/opt/lmi/data/lmihelp.hhp'.
[file /lmi/src/lmi/main_wx.cpp, line 459]

Lmi_wx Error
Cannot open HTML help book: /opt/lmi/data/lmihelp.hhp

I'm quite sure I've copied both files
to the right place. I even added a test[1] that AFAICT proves it.

I also tried creating html files referenced by the help files:

/usr/bin[0]$cd /opt/lmi/data
/opt/lmi/data[0]$touch index.html
/opt/lmi/data[0]$touch doc1.htm
/opt/lmi/data[0]$touch doc2.htm
/opt/lmi/data[0]$touch doc3.htm
/opt/lmi/data[0]$touch doc4.htm
/opt/lmi/data[0]$touch doc5.htm
/opt/lmi/data[0]$ls -o *.hh*
-rwx------+ 1 chicares 996 Feb 28 20:11 lmihelp.hhc
-rwx------+ 1 chicares 365 Feb 28 20:44 lmihelp.hhp

and that's definitely the directory where all other lmi data
files reside.

I also tried suppressing this line
        wxHelpProvider::Set(new(wx) wxSimpleHelpProvider);
that I had committed on 20080228T1731Z, and also tried changing
it to this
        wxHelpProvider::Set(new(wx) wxHelpControllerHelpProvider);
but those things didn't work, either.

I ran the program under 'gdb', but observed no wx debug message.

I even tried

/opt/lmi/data[0]$u2d lmihelp.hhc lmihelp.hhp

in case CRLF line endings were necessary, but that didn't help.

If I comment out
and the error-reporting block it governs, then everything seems
to work fine. Let me cat the *.hh* files below[2] in case that's
of any use.


[1] Experimentally call access() to ensure file exists
(this test always says "The help file is accessible."):

+ #include "platform_dependent.hpp" // access()
  void Skeleton::InitHelp()
      help_controller_ = new(wx) wxHtmlHelpController(wxHF_DEFAULT_STYLE, 

      fs::path path(global_settings::instance().data_directory() / 

+     if(access(path.string().c_str(), R_OK))
+         {
+         fatal_error()
+             << "File '"
+             << path.string()
+             << "' is required but could not be found. Try reinstalling."
+             << LMI_FLUSH
+             ;
+         }
+     else warning() << "The help file is accessible." << std::flush;

[2] Here are my *.hh* files:

/opt/lmi/data[0]$for z in *.hh*; do echo $z; cat $z; done;
