Google merge chm, maybe also decompile chm.

If the modules all call their own help, it might be tricky to integrate them.

If financial system is customizable and has a lot of third-party
add-ons, it may provide tools for customizing the help. Oracle
Financials does, though that's not .chm.

But, let's say, you're in the main system and don't know that you're not supposed to use the built-in check printing function. What to do then?
