I think it's the Windows help file format he's talking about. There was, long ago, a project called "Dippy Bird" that distributed such a thing; it's long since defunct. You can probably find the files from that project out on the Internet somewhere, but they'll be sorely out of date.

Why on Earth is this in the "Advanced" forum? I'm moving it to "Java in General (Beginner)."

There's something even better: A tool to generate CHM files from any javadocs you want to throw at it.

Because you can't search the API documentation in Javadoc format?

A local solution might be more effective than an Internet-based one such as this.

I didn't say there was no reason to convert to CHM, I just pointed out you can search the Javadoc using Google. A lot of people forget (or don't know to begin with) that you can specify a site.

Really??? I just tried it on the airplane yesterday and I got a DNS error when trying to connect to Google. Perhaps your solution only works when you have an internet connection and the lister was looking for something that worked ALL the time?

Google is great when you are connected. For a complete list of Google advanced operators - http://www.google.com/help/operators.html.

There's really no need to be hostile, I was pointing out alternatives. If they have a local copy they can search for files containing the text they're after too.
