Convert chm to html browser-based help system!

Using chm2web you can convert documentation in the chm format (html help) into a full-featured browser-based platform-independent html help system that can be viewed in any modern web browser. The set of HTML files created by chm2web can be as well uploaded to your web server or used locally as a help system for your products.

Using chm2web you can also convert a compiled HTML Help file of any size to a format readable on your PDA (PocketPC, HPC, Palm or Psion). 

Why create web online help systems?

  • To make your potential customers stay with your product right after the first visit of your web site. Let them see that your product is exactly what they need and that they need not to search further. 
  • To drive more traffic to your web site from search engines. There is no other material like your help file that contains as many keywords and key phrases of high relevance to your software. 
  • To be able to give direct links to your online help system web pages to your customers instead of trying to explain how to navigate your offline help file. 
  • If your software features web-interface it must have an online help system. Even if you do not have a ready HTML help file you can easily create one using freeware Microsoft html help workshop and then convert it to online help system using chm2web within several seconds.

Easy Index Generator v2.0

Updated: 06/15/2005


Easy Index Generator provides quick and simple creation of customizable index files (files of Contents) for any files types, which can be used in CHM (HTMLHelp), eBooks, online Help, as DataCD menu, as Site Map of your Website, making it easy to have an overview of the website and get the quick access to HTML pages, graphics, media files, shared documents, applications, archives etc.

The program has a visual interface. This makes it easy to design and create index files. You get the output file as you design it. You can specify which types of files will be indexed and sort the items by moving them up and down, creating logical sections.

Easy Index Generator can create two types of tree menus of indexed files in a target HTML file: static menus and click-to-open menus. In static menus all sections are displayed as simple text, and all items — as simple links. When user clicks on a static menu item the linked page opens.

Click-to-open tree menus are the type used in Windows Explorer for displaying folders: they open when clicked, and remain open until clicked again. This kind of menu allows you to sort items in different logical sections which display their contents when user clicks on a section header. These tree menus work in Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Opera, and other browsers. You don't need to do any javascript programming; the software does all the work.

With PaperKiller you can create electronic manuals and hypertext 
documents in minutes, even if you’re not a technically minded!

Paper Killer is a professional and easy-to-use visual tool specializing in the creation, management, off-line publishing of any type of hyperlinked electronic documentation. In other words, it deals well with text-sets (just like the one you are reading), and includes the advantage of multiple links and colored pages. All of the most popular formats such as Html, Rtf, WinHelp HLP, HTMLHelp CHM are supported. 

With Paper Killer you can quickly and efficiently produce: 
- training manuals, technical manuals 
- hypertext, hypermedia 
- software user guides, online help systems, Win Help HLP and HTML Help CHM formats; 
- specifications, minutes 
- personal multimedia CD (with automatic install) 
- policy, procedure, health and safety manuals 
- rule books, with cross references 
- catalogs catalogues 

Paper Killer is designed to reduce effort and save you time. You work with a document that encapsulates a set of pages and images, instead of working with single pages. In the editor you can revise, browse, and search within your whole hypertext. It's much easier to work with a single file, free from the need to continuously save and load the information. Archiving, updating and keeping your documents in order has never been easier. 

PaperKiller’s intuitive quick-start environment requires no more technical skills than a common word processor, but is extremely powerful behind the scenes. The editor supports styles, tables, maps, frame sets, slides, mouse-over changing images, window pop-ups and much more, all visually (WYSIWYG). The innovative WYSIWYLTM visual interface dramatically speeds up link browsing and management, and allows elaborate frame to frame links without coding. A variety of wizards simplify common tasks: you can even replace images and links throughout your hypertext, in a moment.

"Scribe" Software License Terms Generator v1.0

Updated: 06/15/2005


"Scribe" JIT Software's Software License Terms Generator is a WINDOWS based tool that software authors can use to generate license documentation for their product(s) with the minimum of effort. The Generator produces documents based on US and UK legal precedent and contains topic specific and "boiler plate" clauses that can be used to protect the intellectual and copy rights of software authors from infringement and at the same time reduce liabilities.

There are two very good reasons to use this software: cost and protection. We develop software ourselves, and one of the biggest bills we faced was the legal fees associated with writing license documentation for our products. We paid an attorney to write our first license agreement which cost us a nearly UK ú500.00. When we examined the terms of the license we found that it was based on standard legal terms (what are known as "precedents") and that in fact our attorney had used a template to draw up our license documents. We decided that this was something that we could automate and we set about finding suitable prototypes.
