Follow up

I would not mind fixing this. But it needs to be done with the make dist method.

Proposed code welcome.

Sebastien Fricker:
The command:
sed -e 's/http:\/\/\/twiki\/pub\/Motion\/[^/]*\/\([^"/]*\)/images\/\1/g' motion_guide.html > motion_guide_rel_images.htm
replace every link from to the local folder images. The code can be put into the installation script. The pictures normal.jpg, outputnormal.jpg, outputmotion.jpg, outputmotion-EedD.jpg should be put into the source distribution.

Fix record

Instead of fixing this I will reject it for now. The reason is that the Motion Guide is becomming too long to be one document. I would like to split it up soon so that I can better refactor special topics.

There will still be a guide but maybe shorter.

Maybe we should talk about how the manual for XMotion could work with what is on the TWiki. We can do many tricks on TWiki with special topics that includes parts of others.
