I know the OP is no longer working at an IBM I shop.

Thanks Jon. Almost everyone, Agile included has an Intel server stuffed somewhere in the infrastructure.

All of ours have been on the IBM i Jim (did you doubt it <grin>) but I do usually run them up on my Mac first.

Jon,

Are those running on IBM i or intel? I'm not sure I care but
wondering about infrastructure requirements.

A number of folks that I know use a simple wiki for this purpose. All
of the search capabilities are built-in, and in many cases users can
easily be taught how to document their own processes.

Other useful capabilities include the ability to keep a full history
of who changed what and to roll back changes. Lot's of good free
versions in PHP including Mediawiki which is what runs wikipedia. One
that we have used at a couple of sites and which is trivial so set up
because it needs no database is PMWiki.

Can anybody recommend software for documentation? An online site
would
work but ideally I would like to keep the knowledge base local. I'm
not talking about sections of code. I'm looking for process flows,
file structures, what to do when X happens, etc. The emphasis should
be that it's structured and searchable. Over the years I've mostly
done this by putting it all in a single Word document. That's hardly
a database but it does allow for pictures and searching. I've seen a
wiki used to document a large system that was used by many people.
There was so much information it was unsearchable to get anything
meaningful. The structure made sense to the analysts but wasn't the
best for developers. I'm in a smaller setting now but would still
like something that would have fit the previous environment. Open
source
(free) is good.
