KchmViewer is a CHM (MS HTML help file format) viewer written in
C++. Unlike most existing CHM viewers for Unix, it uses the
Trolltech Qt widget library and does not depend on KDE or Gnome.
However, it may be compiled with full KDE support including KDE
widgets and KIO/KHTML. This script builds Qt-only version.
The main advantage of KchmViewer is extra support for non-English
languages. Unlike other viewers, KchmViewer in most cases is able
to detect help file encoding, correctly shows tables of contents of
Russian, Korean, Chinese and Japanese help files, and does correct
search in non-English help files (search for MBCS languages -
ja/ko/ch is still in progress).
KchmViewer is written by George Yunaev (see the contacts page
for details), and is licensed under the GNU GPL license. It uses
chmlib and some ideas and code from xhcm.
