  "The function to call for online help if the normal help fails.
Online help works only for system routines which are described in the
IDL manuals.  A function may be specified to access help from other sources.

The function must accept four arguments: NAME, TYPE, CLASS, KEYWORD.
The Help buffer is current when this function is called, and the help
text should be loaded into this buffer.  If help is found, the
function should return the buffer position which should be used as
`window-start' in the help window.  Also, the variable
`idlwave-help-mode-line-indicator' should be set to a useful string,
which will be displayed in the mode line of the help window.  If
should also set the variable `idlwave-help-min-frame-width' to a
positive integer.  IDLWAVE will ensure that the help frame is at least
that many columns wide.  Failure to find help should be indicated by
throwing an error.

When this variable is non-nil, IDLWAVE will allow the mouse-3 help click
for every routine and keyword, even though the item may not be highlighted
in blue (indicating the availability of system documentation).

The default value for this function is `idlwave-help-with-source' which
loads the routine source file into the help buffer.  If you try to write
a different function which accesses a special help file or so, it is
probably a good idea to still call this function as a fallback."

down to the keyword requested.  This setting is for context help, if

If EXACT is nil, the position of the header is returned if it

be found.  TYPE is ignored.

This function expects a more or less standard routine header.  In
particlar it looks for the `NAME:' tag, either with a colon, or alone
on a line.  Then `NAME:' must be followed by the routine name on the
same or the next line.  When KEYWORD is non-nil, looks first for a
`KEYWORDS' section.  It is amazing how inconsisten this is through
some IDL libraries I have seen.  We settle for a line containing an
upper case \"KEYWORD\" string.  If this line is not fould we search
for the keyword anyway to increase the hit-rate
