On the Documentation tab, you can also find the help files for all installed packages and your user packages listed. This is possible because the documentation links are created dynamically for your installation. For more information on packages, see Chapter 8, Starting Development with Package Creation.

For all questions related to programming that are not covered by the documentation, please refer to the MeVisLab forum where you can search old topics or post new questions.
