I'm trying to create a .chm file on a Mac, but can't seem to find an application to do it.

Are there any .chm creators for OS X?

What sort of a file is a .chm? – CajunLuke Feb 7 '11 at 23:30
Why do you need CHM? – digitxp Feb 7 '11 at 23:38
A .chm is a Microsoft Compiled HTML Help file. – rakslice May 17 '11 at 8:46

Not really, you could potentially run Sandcastle under Darwine or a virtual machine.

Or if you're feeling adventurous you could try using the FreePascal CHM package

It looks like both AurigaDoc and DocBook can export to .chm as well

Sounds like HelpLogic will do it.

Newer versions of Free Pascal (2.4.4 and newer) also have a basic commandline CHM compiler (not just library form). The command is named chmcmd
