This is CHM compare? It only compares the user created content not
the compiler created binary files.
What I do is make sure the Alias and Context include files, as well
as the HHP, are all added to the CHM (via the [FILES] section at
compile time). Then these can be compared as well.
But let's say you only have 2 CHMs and no source...
I would use keyTools (free from http://KeyWorks.net) and
decompile the CHM. KeyTools can recreated the HHP file and
I'm pretty sure it also constructs the Ccntext info as well.
Once you have 2 HHP files you can do a compare using any
file compare tool.
FAR HH Utils windows > Text HH API page -- list the Context IDs of
the current CHM in a drop down. But this cannot be exported out.
Actually in HH Utils ... Double click on the #IVB file (to open the
Help File Explorer). It will list the context IDs encoded in the
#IVB binary file.
Hopefully something there will get you out of trouble.
