archmage - CHM(Compiled HTML) Decompressor.


archmage chmfile directory
archmage -p port chmfile


This manual page documents briefly the archmage command. This manual page was written for
the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

arCHMage is an extensible reader and decompiler for files in the CHM format. This is the
format used by Microsoft HTML Help, and is also known as Compiled HTML. arCHMage is based
on python-chm binding to chmlib from GnoCHM project.


There is three ways to use arCHMage package now:

1) Extract .chm to directory (directory will be created):

archmage <chmfile> <directory>

2) Run as http-server, which will publish chm file contents on specified port:

archmage -p <port> <chmfile>

3) Tune your apache to publish chm file contents if there is trailing slash in request to
that file (you will need working mod_python for that):

Add that lines to your httpd.conf:

AddHandler python-program .chm
PythonHandler archmod.mod_chm

Restart apache.

Let's suppose, you have file sample.chm in DocumentRoot of your apache. After that tuning
you can receive raw chm file, if you point your browser to


or you can view chm file on the fly if you point your browser to

http://yourserver/sample.chm/ (note trailing slash)
