I am thinking of publishing on CPAN a module, Html::MakeChm and its driving script, along these lines :
HtmlMakeChm - make a chm help file with minimal fuss
HtmlMakeChm --projdir=H:\perl\dev\MyModule\Html --projname=MyModuleH
HtmlMakeChm makes a chm help file with minimal fuss - just specify the
+ project directory and name.
It will collect all .html files found in the project directory <projdi
and its subdirectories, and compile them into a ready-to-use "<projnam
You need the Microsoft HTML Help Workshop installed in "C:/Program Fil
+es/HTML Help Workshop".
Complete installation is not necessary, files "C:/Program Files/HTML H
and "C:/Program Files/HTML Help Workshop/itcc.dll" will suffice.
=head1 How to use
Prepare a collection of html files using any HTML editor or tool (e.g.
+ pod2html) and place
them into the project directory and/or its subdirectories. The subdire
+ctories if any
will become branches in the Contents tree.
Run this script from command line
HtmlMakeChm --projdir=H:\perl\dev\MyModule\Html --projname=MyModul
When done, you will find the resulting file MyModuleHelp.chm in the pr
Prints more info about processing.
Prints minimal help.
Prints the manual page.
Specifies the project directory (full path or path relative to current
+ directory). Place your html files here
and in any subdirectories.
Specifies the project name which becomes the name of chm help file.
