This tool creates .chm files from .html or .txt (markdown) files.
The main feature of FreshHelp is that it extracts and automatically creates the table of contents and index file for the .chm file. You only have to provide .html or even .txt file.

The attached package contains the full source code and binaries for Windows and Linux.

If .html file is specified, FreshHelp will create the table of contents from the heading tags (h1..h6) and the index from the anchor tags with "id" or "name" property.
If .txt file is specified, it will assume the file is formatted with MiniMagAsm text formatting (similar to markdown), will compile the file to .html and then
will extract the needed information from this .html file.

In order to test the tool, run "example/compile.bat" in Windows or "example/compile.sh" in Linux.

FreshHelp uses .chm compiler chmcmd from the project Free Pascal and doesn't depend on M$ tools.

FreshHelp is "one-day-project" and possibly contains bugs and misses some needed features.

Direct download link to latest version: FreshHelp.zip
The site will ask you to fill out simple captcha. Click on "Fill out captcha" and then "Login", or fill out the captcha manually and then click "Login". Then the download will start.

sleepsleep & yong conversation inside MiniMagAsm,,, Very Happy COOOLLL!!!

btw, i like the idea of table representation
<table>
<tr>
<td>1,1</td><td>1,2</td>
</tr><tr>
<td>2,1</td><td>2,2</td>
</tr>
</table>

compare to

;table
(2,2)
;end table

i think (2,2) is neat & better

After some work, I created a source repository for this project: http://chiselapp.com/user/johnfound/repository/FreshHelp/index

Now, FreshHelp can process LaTeX files as well, using the TTH converter to convert .TEX to .HTML and then to .CHM files.

Also, FreshHelp can merge several different, mixed type files into one .CHM file with common index and table of contents.
