NAME
       mthelp -	MiKTeX help utility

SYNOPSIS
       mthelp [option...] {name...}

DESCRIPTION
       mthelp is a utility to look up MiKTeX related documentation.

       mthelp creates an HTML page which contains a short description of the
       package together	with links to all documentation	files. An HTML viewer
       is started to view the page.

       You can use the --view to bypass	the intermediate HTML file.

       name should be the name of a package in the TeX distribution.

OPTIONS
       --list-only
	   List	documentation files, but do not	start a	viewer.

       --print-only
	   Print the command that would	be executed to view the	documentation,
	   but do not start the	command.

       --quiet
	   Suppress all	output,	except errors.

       --version
	   Show	version	information and	exit.

       --view
	   Open	the main documenation file in a	viewer.

ENVIRONMENT
       MIKTEX_TRACE
	   Comma-separated list	of trace stream	names (see Chapter 9, Trace
	   Streams). If	this variable is set, then MiKTeX programs will	write
	   trace messages into the configured log sink.

       MIKTEX_VIEW_dvi
	   DVI viewer.

       MIKTEX_VIEW_pdf
	   PDF viewer.

       MIKTEX_VIEW_ps
	   PostScript viewer.

       MIKTEX_VIEW_html
	   HTML	viewer.

       MIKTEX_VIEW_txt
	   Text	viewer.

       The environment variables should	be set with a "%f" as a	placeholder
       for the name of the file. For example:

	   > MIKTEX_VIEW_pdf="gv %f"

FILES
       The intermediate	HTML file (package.html) is stored in the directory
       miktex/mthelp relative to the data TEXMF	data root (usually
       ~/.miktex/texmfs/data).
