Abstract : The purpose of this project is to develop a Dynamic Help Generator. This paper describes that Dynamic Help Generator, a programmer's development tool intended to be used by someone who seeks to design and implement a Dynamic Help Module (a module that can be added to interactive programs to produce Dynamic Help messages). Dynamic Help messages are non-interactive, state- specific, and context-specific messages that attempt to answer every question that a user might have at a specific point in a program.
