Often while working on a project, I need to look up multiple GTK-Doc entries. This results in having a number of tabs open in my browser at once.

In order to save time and effort, I have written a PERL script which re-formats the main pages of my system's GTK-Doc HTML files into a form for easier navigation. One page is generated for each GTK-Doc collection. Each has a left-hand table-of-contents panel, and an 'iframe' element containing the targeted contents. There is a moveable separator between the two. (Although it looks like "FRAMESET" HTML, the feature is actually achieved via Javascript.) At the top of the TOC panel is a navigation element which reveals a drop-down list of links to all of the other generated HTML files - providing faster access to often inter-related documentation.

The PERL script implements the packages 'HTML::Tree' v5 and 'URI'. Both are available via

I hope you find this to be useful.

Please let me know of anything wanting fixing or improvement.
