kindof...  /usr/ports/converters/chmview

Chmview is a simple program to decompose .chm-file to the
components. Originally it was written for MS Windows to work
in conjunction with Far filemanager.


I've just tried it on a few .chm files, and it didn't work.  didn't
want to view or extract the archive, which is a bit of a shame.

anyone else got any ideas?  i see there's chmlib in misc/chmlib - i've
not been able to find a program which uses it to turn a chm file into a
file hierarchy.
