PyCHM is a package that provides Python binding for Jed Wing's CHMLIB library.
The chm package contains four modules, namely chm.chm, chm.chmlib,
chm.extra and chm._chmlib, which provide access to the API implemented
by the C library chmlib and some additional classes and functions.
They are used to access MS-ITSS encoded files - Compressed Html Help
files (.chm).
