xlsm file is a version of an Excel
xlsx file that contains an additional VBA project binary file. The
xlsm file format is a collection of mainly XML files in a ZIP container.

vbaProject.bin and is generally located in the
xl directory of the
add_vba_project() section of the Excel::Writer::XLSX documentation for more details.

On Windows you can use any suitable Unzip application.
