[edit] Qt Creator prompts "Choose topic" with latest version of qch file

With 20150808 version of docs (File:qch book qt creator shows topic selection menu [1] when browsing help and filtering by index. Previous versions of docs were without this problem Checked in qt creator 3.01 - 3.5.0.

[edit] Atomic operations library page is missing

Checked files: File:html book, File:html book 20140323.tar.gz

These files doesn't contain the file "reference/en/cpp/atomic.html" (Atomic operations library), the link from the index.html and Main_Page.html lead to "reference/en/cpp/atomic" (folder) instead.

[edit] qch formatting issues

The qch book seems not to obey some of the CSS. In particular, font formatting does not work and thus the code examples are in regular, not monospace, font. Maybe someone could investigate what causes this issue?

Some information that might help:

Everything is contained in File:cppreference-doc-20110121.tar.gz. When extracted, running make all in the resulting directory will build the documentation; make clean will cleanup all newly cleated files (useful for rebuilding from a clean state).

The global CSS file is at reference/

It might be useful to know a way to rebuild only the qch book. The following bash code can be used:

cp qch-help-project.xml output/qch.xml
pushd "output"; qhelpgenerator qch.xml -o "../cppreference-doc-en.qch"; popd
rm -f output/qch.xml

Note, that it processes the files at the output directory, so any temporary hacks should go there, not into the reference/ directory. P12 05:32, 7 February 2012 (PST)

[edit] qch formatting is broken on qtcreator > 4.1.0

Please note that with the 4.1.0 version of QtCreator, these qch files aren't displayed properly since QtCreator uses QTextBrowser instead of QtWebKit to render the help files. See

[edit] 404 on html book 20120620.tar.gz

I get a 404 Not found on the file download itself, for the 20120620 raw and HTML book at least. The URL is [2]

20120620 update links are dead. Could you fix this? Thanks.-- 07:19, 22 June 2012 (PDT)

Fixed. -- P12 05:51, 23 June 2012 (PDT)

[edit] qch file not useable without internet connection

Pages have a reference to a JS file from Google Analytics ( Qt Creator displays an error page when it fails to download this file. So, practically, qch file unusable offline.

This issue has been fixed in the 20121202 version of the archive. Thanks for reporting. P12 23:52, 3 December 2012 (PST)

[edit] Having man pages considered useful or not?

Could it be a nice addition to have

man c sizeof
man c enum

and such ?
At first thought, having man pages for C operators sounded silly, but when thinking about how it might work, I already have myself looking up man bash or man gawk all the time. man already has section n,l (for new pages, local pages) so perhaps adding it somewhere there. Probably others has thought about it before, and I might be missing the obvious, but. Nothing serious, just a though. 12:22, 29 July 2014 (PDT)

[edit] Update devhelp book for Debian and Ubuntu?

Until now, the latest version of cppreference(in devhelp format) I can find on Ubuntu&Debian is still 20140827. (See [3] and [4])

It has been a long time since doc-20141118 was released, which includes lots of information about c++11. Therefore, I would like to ask why devhelp version is still 20140827? Any help would be appreciated. --Htfy96 (talk) 00:48, 22 July 2015 (PDT)

I'm working on updating/fixing the scripts that generate the various offline's been going slow but hopefully I'll be able to post something soon. Hang in there. --Nate (talk) 07:35, 26 July 2015 (PDT)

Hi folks,

I started reworking the scripts. You find my current version on github.[6]

I'm focussing on the QtCreater version. I fixed/added the additional namespaces for std when using clang and cleaned up the html. I combined the TOC from the C and the C++ part. Furthermore I removed the index-chapers-* files, since they are now automatically generated from the overview pages.

I would like to generate the index-functions-* files, too, but since there seems to be some activity around them I wanted to ask first.

Comments and help welcome.

Regards Mike.

[edit] Host devhelp version on Arch on this site


I converted cppreference-devhelp.deb to an arch package, and now I want to upload it to Arch User Repository. Since AUR doesn't support any file larger than 500KB, could you please store this file on this site? Then anyone can download this package here.

Here is the file:
