ABAP Documentation in .CHM file format


Hello ABAP friends,

because I am one of those people that are used to work with .CHM help files to look up and search for language commands and concepts, I really would appreciate a copy of the ABAP documentation in this format. The application servers help functions contain lots of popups and windows that make me not happy, it just slows me down. I searched a bit for a .CHM copy but couldnt find anything suitable.

There might be two reasons:

a) my search was not good enough (not unlikely).

b) there is nothing directly available.

Since I didnt find anything, I examined the .CHM SDK (freely available from microsoft), and it is indeed easy usable. The second thing i noticed is that the application server lets you download the ABAP documentation as a bundle of .html files. Based on a few experiments, I concluded that assembling a .CHM from this files is indeed a manageable task.

However I do not want to reinvent the wheel. If you know where I can find .CHM documentation of ABAP, please let me know. Otherwise I would be willing to create such a file and share it with you, provided that there are no legal constraints.

Best regards,
