[PD-dev] renaming core help files to the standard name

I would like to rename the Pd core help files in CVS so that they  
conform to the naming convention *-help.pd.  Currently, they are in the  
deprecated format help-*.pd.  There are two ways for this to happen:  
add and remove the files from CVS, or put in a support request to  
sourceforge to have them rename them in CVS.  The later option is  
preferred because then the CVS history is preserved.

This script will rename the files for you if you run it in pd/doc:


for helpfile in help-*.pd ; do
    mv "$helpfile" "`echo $helpfile | sed  

Once we agree to this, I'll put in the SourceForge support request.  It  
generally takes them less than a week to fulfill such requests.
