File Layout of a Glossary File (.GLO)

Feb 24, 2009 7:11 AM

As a new RH user, I have yet to find a definitive answer about how a RH glossary file (a .GLO file type) is defined. The RH help file talks all about importing them into your projects, but nowhere does it mention what the file looks like inside. Presumably, it has a glossary term and its definition as its components, but are they comma separated or what in their layout?

Can anyone provide this info?

    Hi Jeff

    These are simple text files. You may open and view them using Windows Notepad.

    Here is one of mine:
    NAME=BC
    BC represents BigCo, our company name

    As you can see, they follow the format of NAME=BC (BC is the glossary term you define)
    Glossary description here (the simple description follows the term)

    Hopefully this helps... Rick

    Unless you're talking about RH8, where the contents of the file are set up in XML.

    Specifically:

    <glossentry>
    <glossterm>Term</glossterm>
    <glossdef>Definition.</glossdef>
    </glossentry>

    Hi Ben

    Hmmm, thanks for posting that. I was unaware it had changed!

    Cheers... Rick

    Aren't all the project files in XML with RH8? I can't look without some major destruction as my laptop (with RH8 installed) is locked in my desk drawer and I left the key at home this morning

    Jeff, did you ever get your Fm glossary to process into Rh?

     

    I have the Glossary markers processing into the GLO, but not the GlossaryTerm markers (which is helpful when navigating said glossary )

    I found the answer in a different thread...

     

    The Glossary terms are processed into the Rh glossary file. Insert a Glossary marker (containing the glossary term) into a paragraph containing only the glossary term definition.
