The Tom manual is built by using the wiki documentation. Follow each step below to build the manual :

  • Update the documentation (if needed)
  • Go to this page and select the previous version of the Tom manual or the following version.
  • Click on the 'Load this book as your current book ' link in the 'create book' section of left menu
  • If new pages have to be added to the manual, open them and click on the 'Add wiki page' link in the 'create book' section of left menu
  • If new contributors worked on the manual, add their names in the contributors page and change the date (it is also possible to create a new page or to modify old manuals in order to use a specific version of the page)
  • If organization of the manual has changed, it is necessary to update the content page (keep the existing format)
  • Go on the book page by clicking on 'Show book' link
  • Reorganize the outline if needed (drag an drop)
  • Save the book (choose Tom:Books rather than User:XXX/Books/)
  • Generate and download the PDF version
