2.1.6 Building the documentation

Building the PostgreSQL documentation in HTML format requires several tools and files. Create a root directory for all these files, and store them in the subdirectories in the list below.

OpenJade 1.3.1-2
Download from sourceforge.net(3) and uncompress in the subdirectory ‘openjade-1.3.1’.
DocBook DTD 4.2
Download from www.oasis-open.org(4) and uncompress in the subdirectory ‘docbook’.
DocBook DSSSL 1.79
Download from sourceforge.net(5) and uncompress in the subdirectory ‘docbook-dsssl-1.79’.
ISO character entities
Download from http://www.oasis-open.org/cover/ISOEnts.zip and uncompress in the subdirectory ‘docbook’.

Edit the ‘buildenv.pl’ file, and add a variable for the location of the root directory, for example:

$ENV{DOCROOT}='c:\docbook';

To build the documentation, run the command ‘builddoc.bat’. Note that this will actually run the build twice, in order to generate the indexes. The generated HTML files will be in ‘doc\src\sgml’.
