The chmls utility performs several CHM related functions, such as listing CHM file contents, extracting one file or the whole archive and extracting special files. Archiving however is the domain of the chmcmd utility

Extracts all files from archive "filename" to directory "directory"

(Windows only) Mass unblocks (XPsp2+) the relevant CHMs. Multiple files and wildcards allowed

Extracts context info from file "chmfilename" to basefilename.h and basefilename.ali, using symbols "symbolprefix" + contextnr

For backwards compatibility reasons, the list command is default.
