This module allows to update the help of a module, based 
on a set of .sci files. 
It is a tool built on top of the help_from_sci function.


The main function is :

 * helptbx_helpupdate ( funarray , helpdir , macrosdir )
 * helptbx_helpupdate ( funarray , helpdir , macrosdir , demosdir , modulename
 * helptbx_helpupdate ( funarray , helpdir , macrosdir , demosdir , modulename ,
verbose )

which automatically updates the .xml help pages of a module if required, 
and updates the Demo gateway if required.


 * Allow to skip the generation of the demos.
