Compiling the PhD guide

The PhD guide is this manual you are reading currently. It lives in PhD's SVN repository under docs/phd-guide/phd-guide.xml. If you installed PhD from SVN, you already have it. Otherwise, get it:

$ svn checkout
U phd/docs/phd-guide/phd-guide.xml

Now you have everything you need. Just type

$ cd phd/docs/phd-guide/
$ phd -f bigxhtml -d phd-guide.xml

There should be an .html file in the directory now. View it with a browser!

That's all to say. This way you can render your own docbook files, too.
