Hello,

Recently I have been enjoying the integrated way
that Emacs works for many things but especially
viewing documentation inside Emacs was especially handy.

Some projects use gtk-doc. Is there a way to bridge
the gap between their HTML docs and Emacs?

I found gtk-look[1] but that isn't exactly what I want.
Ideally something that converts gtk-docs to info would be
great.

Other related solutions for HTML based documentation might
also work.

Have a nice day,

Björn

The website says that it outputs Docbook, and I find that there's a
docbook2x-texi package. Haven't used it though.

But I wrote this post mainly to crow about how great it is to have
python (sphinx) documentation in info:

(Often with some bugs in the ouput that one has to manually work around)

That works great! However it doesn't work for Doxygen or Qt Help docs.
Any ideas for those?
