Synopsis

Description

This manual page briefly documents the gsf-vba-dump command.

Various Microsoft binary data formats, including Excel (.xls), Word (.doc) and PowerPoint (.ppt) can embed macro code streams. These macro streams are in P-code (intermediate language) compiled from Visual Basic for Applications (VBA).

The gsf-vba-dump utility extracts these macro streams.

Macro extraction from Powerpoint (.ppt) files has not been implemented yet.
