KchmViewer - a chm files viewer.

Kchmviewer is a chm files (MS HTML help file format) viewer. The main advantage of KchmViewer is extended support for non-English languages. KchmViewer in most cases correctly detects chm file encoding, correctly shows tables of context of Russian, Korean, Chinese and Japanese help files. It searches in non-English help files (albeit, the search for MBCS languages - ja/ko/ch is still in progress.)

Features:

  • Has support for TDEIO slave, TDEHTML and K*Widget.
  • Safe and harmless, kchviewer does not support JavaScript, optionally warns you before opening an external web page or switching to another help file.
  • Detects and shows encoding of any valid chm file.
  • Shows non-English chm files, including cyrillic, chinese, japanese...
  • Search in non-English chm files using chm built-in search index.
  • Shows an appropriate image for every TOC entry.
  • Has chm index support, including multiple index entries, cross-links and parent/child entries in index.
  • Persistent bookmarks support. Kchviewer stores the screen position for every bookmark.
  • For any opened chm files, stores the last opened window, search history, bookmark history, font size, etc, so when you open this file again, everything is on the last place.
  • Has easy and powerful search-in-page support.
  • Allows to increase or decrease the font size, so partially sighted people can read texts easily.
  • Has standard Back/Forward/Home navigation.
  • Can print the opened pages on a standard printer (usually via CUPS).
  • Has complex search query support.
