library for dealing with Microsoft CHM files (development)

It is a very simple library, but sufficient for dealing with all of the chm files. Library currently does not has write support.

CHM files are used on the Microsoft Windows platform to store program documentation, almost always in the form of HTML, with some non-standard quirks. CHM files are a form of archive known as InfoTech Storage Format (ITSF) files and contain some special files to implement features of the CHM viewer.

This package includes development headers, libraries and test programs.

chmlib (2:0.40-2) unstable; 


Changes from 0.37 to 0.38
    - Fix for reading some chm files.  Running over a large directory of chm
      files, about 1% of them turned out to be unreadable.  This resulted from
      an incomplete understanding of one of the header fields (index_root).
      Apparently, this can take negative values other than -1.

    - Security fix for extract_chmLib.  Pathnames containing a ".." element
