Devhelp's primary goal is to be an API documentation browser for GNOME.
It is able to scan for .devhelp files generated automatically for
packages that use gtk-doc-tools to generate documentation for libraries
and programs.
Devhelp provides some integration capabilities, which is used to allow
command-line searches, emacs integration and embedding in applications like
the Anjuta IDE.
