the Archive::Chm manpage is a module that provides access to Microsoft Compiled HTML Help
files (chm files). A lot of today's software ships with documentation in .chm
format. However Microsoft only provides viewing tools for their own OS and the
company doesn't disclose the format specification.
Unofficial specs can be found at Matthew T. Russotto's site:
The module is basically a wrapper of Jed Wing's chmlib, a C library that
provides access to all ITSS archives, though .chm is the only ITSS type
file in use today. To use this module you need chmlib installed on your system.
You can get it at:
Currently access to .chm files is read-only and this will change over time if
Jed Wing upgrades his library. Supported operations are getting a listing of the
contents, extracting one or all items in the archive and retrieving an item's length.
