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 Demos gateway if required.

Comment from Samuel Gougeon -- February 27, 2016, 07:55:27 PM    
helptbx uses apifun but doesn't check that apifun is installed and loaded.
Then, i got errors, because apifun was well installed, but as quite usually for external
modules, i have canceled its autoload at startup.
An internal chek_apifun_ready_else_load_it() could be added to secure the dependency.
Best regards
