List streams

docker run --rm -v /samples:/samples cincan/oledump-linux /samples/<OLE-FILE>

Dump a stream's content

docker run --rm -v /samples:/samples cincan/oledump-linux -s <STREAM NUMBER> /samples/<OLE-FILE>

Identify encryption version

docker run --rm -v /samples:/samples cincan/oledump-linux -p plugin_office_crypto /samples/<OLE-FILE>
