xCHM

UNIX CHM viewer.

WARNING

Someone has re-created the xchm project on SourceForge, complete with the website and downloads. IT'S NOT ME. DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING FROM SOURCEFORGE AND DO NOT FOLLOW THE "RELEASES" THERE.

The only legitimate xCHM source code and releases are here.

Prerequisites

In order to be able to compile the code you need to have wxWidgets and CHMLIB installed.

Get the GTK+ version (also known as wxGTK). xCHM currently compiles with all flavours of wxWidgets, but only works well and looks truly appealing with wxGTK, so I recommend against bothering to use it with anything else.

Installing

Type ./configure --help if you're interested in parameters you can pass to configure for compile switches. Most people will be perfectly happy doing a:

./configure && make

Once everything is built, type:

make install

and the executable should be somewhere in your $PATH (hopefully :)). Now you can just type

xchm

and start your session.

Built with

Generating documentation

If you'd like to generate developer documentation go to the root of the distribution and type:

doxygen

This of course implies that you have doxygen installed. The documentation will be generated in the doc directory in HTML and LaTex format.

Binaries

I am no longer providing Mac and Windows binaries, just the source code. Some Linux distributions already provide binaries (Debian, Arch, Gentoo, Ubuntu, etc.) For Mac, please see MacPorts. Windows users can (and should) just use the standard viewer (hh.exe).

Happy reading!
