D - chm file

I've ripped of Walter's D web page and made a help file out of it.  I 
did it mostly for the search tab since i'm still new to the language and 
  an html help reference is much handier than a web page in my opinion.

Anyhow, i'm posting this message because i want to find out if anyone 
else wants it (is it worth the time to post it on my web page).

Walter, since the file is made up almost entirely of content created by 
you, if you don't want me spreading it around, just let me know and it 
stays on my hard drive.

I'd rather it stayed on the Digital Mars web site, simply because I keep
updating it.

BTW, do you know of a program to convert .hlp files to .html?

HTML Help Workshop will convert WinHelp projects to HTML Help projects. This also converts all the .rtf files to .html, .htm files, which might be what you are looking for. The HTML Help Workshop can also decompile .chm files into the original html files. Those are the only options I know of, but I've never tried to do either one, so I don't know how well they would work. If you only have the .hlp files I don't know of anything to convert them, but then again I avoid working with WinHelp files like I do deadly diseases so that doesn't mean a lot.
