What is ObiWan 5.2?

ObiWan is a general help system.  ObiWan gives you access to a database through a floating window which you can pop up at any time in any application.  Portions of the information can then be sent to the front window as if you had typed it.

Although you can create your own databases, the main use of ObiWan is to access the provided databases, which include:
Force: Procedures, traps, global variables, errors and most of the System 7.6 API.
Java: A guide to the Java class libraries.
Perl: Perl commands.
Words: A word list, useful for checking your spelling.
HTML: A  memory guide for HTML (v3.2), which lists valid attributes, whether a close tag is required, and other tags that a tag may contain.
Translation Databases: A variety of English translation dictionaries, described in more detail below.
