Google tribute to Ferdinand Monoyer, the ophthalmologist

Google Doodle tribute to Ferdinand Monoyer
Yes, I opened my Chrome Browser today. I got a cute and funny doodle on my homepage. I wasn't able to guess what is the Doodle means. I saw the chart in the right, got some idea. But, I wasn't clear about that what's the matter.

After investigating on it. I got a name Ferdinand Monoyer from France, a ophthalmologist who introduced diopter a unit of measure of the optical power of a lens or curved mirror in 1872. Hey, do you know when you want a correct number of opticals for your eyes and you get it, who made it possible? His name is Ferdinand Monoyer.

He was born on 9th May, 1836 and died on 11th July, 1912. You can see monoyer chart in the doodle (right). He was an Associate Professor of Medical Physics at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Strasbourg in 1871. This was his 181th birthday.

To honor Ferdinand Monoyer, Google introduced a doodle having a chart you usually can see it in the opticals stores and eye hospitals. If you got deficiency, and you can read this post, thanks Ferdinand Monoyer.

KchmViewer 7.6

Kchmviewer is a free, open-source CHM (aka MS HTML help) and EPUB viewer written in C++ for Unix, Mac and Windows systems. Unlike most existing CHM viewers for Unix, it uses Trolltech Qt widget library, and could optionally be compiled for better KDE integration. It does not require KDE, but may be compiled with KDE widget support. Since version 5.0 it uses the Webkit API to show the content.

The main advantage of kchmviewer is the best support for non-English languages. Unlike other viewers, kchmviewer in most cases is able to correctly detect the chm file encoding and show it. It correctly shows the index and table of context in Russian, Spanish, Romanian, Korean, Chinese and Arabic help files, and with new search engine is able to search in any chm file no matter what language it is written.

kchmviewer is written by George Yunaev, and is licensed under GNU General Public License version 3. It uses chmlib to handle the CHM files, and some ideas from xchm.
