I'm going to try it, hope it works and doesn't mess up the system.
Using Safari on iPhone to read CHM file
If you are interested in reading CHM on your iPhone. Get this iphoneCHM.tgz Copy the “chm_http2“, “rewriteHTML.py“, and “CHMServer” to “/usr/local/bin/” in your iPhone. Change the permission of these files such that you can run all of them. Put some chm files in /var/root/Media/CHM_Ebooks/. Open a terminal in the iPhone or ssh into the iPhone to run “CHMServer”. After that, ask the Safari to open this URL http://127.0.0.1:8000. You should see the links to the CHM files. You can now click on any of them and enjoy a nice reading time.
You need to install Python too.
127.0.0.1:8000 opens a list of my CHM files and their contents, but after proceeding on any of the content links a "404 file not found" errors occurs. On terminal CHMServer says: "kill: not enough arguments".
