gEdit Language Reference plugin

How it works:
* The external language reference can be an PDF, a DocBook XML, a CHM Windows helpfile, a PostScript file or a HTML page
* Copy the files of the gedit_reference_plugin.zip into "~/.gnome2/gedit/plugins"
* Create a folder "help" in "~/.gnome2/gedit/"
* Copy your language references to "~/.gnome2/gedit/help"
* Set the filename of your reference document as the programming language name (you can get the name easily from "View > Highlight Mode"). An example: if you have a CHM documentation "python25.chm" then rename it into "Python.chm"
* Start gEdit and enable the plugin "Language Reference" in the preferences
* After a restart the plugin appears in the help menu
* Assign the shortcut "Alt+F1" to it
* Yelp (Docbook XML), CHMsee-GnoChm-XCHM-KCHMviewer (Windows comiled Help CHM), Firefox (HTML) or Evince (PDF, PS) are required
* Error dialogs based on Zenity
So now you have an easy access to your programming guides and preferences
If you are using Ubuntu you can grap a up-to-date version of GnoCHM at GetDeb.net.
