digitalmars.D.announce - CHM (HTML Help) for D documentation

reply "Vladimir Panteleev" <thecybershadow gmail.com> writes:
Some time ago I wrote a program that converts the D HTML documentation included
with the Digital Mars compiler to a Compiled HTML help file.

I updated the program, built some fresh CHMs and created a webpage:

  http://thecybershadow.net/d/docs/

You can find more information, the CHMs and the program itself on the webpage.

Welcs :) The glitch is from the original HTML file; it has been fixed on the website shortly after 1.023's release but is still in the ZIP package. -- Best regards, Vladimir mailto:thecybershadow gmail.com

Mr. Panteleev thanks for CHM! However for some reasons I cannot use 
d2.chm when I save it on my HDD... Strangely, when I open it directly 
from the web it works. Any clues why?

Thanks in advanced.

Mr. Panteleev, I do not know what arguments FireFox gives to xCHM. :( 
All I know is that when I open d2.chm directly from FireFox (ie. click 
on it), it opens xCHM and everything seem to work fine.
When I, as i said previously, save that file localy, in, let's say 
~/tmp/d2.chm, it does not work...

You have some issues with xchm then or a broken download. Both files work fine here with xchm and kchmviewer.

if you open the file from FireFox and then in a command prompt run ps -A -f | grep chm you should get a short list of programs (inlcuding the CHM view) and there Command line args. If xCHM doesn't immediately quit when you try to load from the HDD then you can do the same there and compare the args. It might tell you something.

Apparently I somehow managed to download a corrupted file! I apologize 
for all fuzz. :) It works now properly both ways.

I noticed the discussion on IRC and asked you about it, but didn't get a reply. I don't know why wouldn't it work for you specifically... I noticed you use a non-Windows OS, so I can't be sure what exactly's wrong (too many unknowns). One thing that could help you troubleshoot the problem is check the exact command-line arguments to your CHM reader program when you open the file from the web and from your HDD (use a process list utility to check what parameters were passed to it) - it's possible that the browser is passing (or not passing) it some extra arguments that make the difference. -- Best regards, Vladimir mailto:thecybershadow gmail.com
