Chm (compiled help) is a microsoft invention. It's the default help
system under windows, but not so under linux.
I found that (at times) I like better how chm help looks.
Since there are chm viewers under linux, using chm help files should
be possible.
Has anybody tried to set R so it opens chm by default? I'm sure
there's some flag or Rprofile var that could get this done.
