One caveat about the shareware version: it does not handle large help
files very well and (most annoyingly) it inserts reminders to register
the product for full functionality. We purchased a copy of SmartDoc and
it was $27 US (shipping to Montreal included). It's a very useful tool if
you need to extract the contents of a "foreign" help file.
