Hello all,

A CHM file is Microsoft's version of a Compiled HTML Help file. Under windows you would just doubleclick on the filename. There is a free utility available to convert .CHM file to .HTML files, which then can be read with any browser. Download from:

I am not sure, this is best way, but you can use this method as well.

def help():
	os.system('C:\Python25\Doc\Python25.chm')
