DESCRIPTION

The answerbook2 utility brings up the default web browser and shows any online documentation installed in the default AnswerBook2 server.

To define a default AnswerBook2 server, use the environment variable, AB2_DEFAULTSERVER. This functionality is also accessible through the Answer- Book2 option on the CDE front panel Help menu.
