System: Haiku

The BeSly - Tutorial Finder is a small program which is designed to facilitate the search of tutorials on the Haiku, BeOS and Zeta knowledge base BeSly.

All Tutorials included this program are not listed by type of program, like on the website, they are listed by keywords. In addition, you can let the programs list by language, author, and system type.

Also tutorials summarized into "tips and tricks" are listed in this program.

Searching and opening Tutorials

Once you start the program, the tutorials are listed by keywords. Then you select one of the keywords, all available tutorials are listed in the right table. The tutorial itself is opened by double clicking on it in the table.

Using the drop-down menu "sorted by ..." you can change the list of keywords. If we choose for example Haiku are listed only instructions that deal with haiku and its programs.

It is not always advisable to list only tutorials written in a particular language. Often instructions that are written in other languages (by the pricutes) help to solve problems.
