  Description     : Compiled HTML Help (CHM) decompiler

 A program to convert the internal files of Compiled HTML Help (CHM) files back
 into the authoring files used by the CHM compiler to create the CHM files in
 the first place.

 CHM files are used on the Micosoft 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. On Windows they are accessed through a kind of virtual filesystem
 exposed by a dynamically loaded library. ITSF files have UTF-8 filenames and
 use an LZX cruncher to compress all the files in one big chunk. Both the ITSF
 and the formats of the internal CHM files are highly indexed and their designs
 are all clearly optimised for read-only access.
