d Print dots to show column alignment.

e Don't print encapsulated data inside OCTET/BIT STRINGs.

f file
Dump object at offset number to file (allows data to be extracted from encapsulating objects)

h Hex dump object header (tag+length) before the decoded output

hh Same as h but display more of the object as hex data.

l Long format, display extra info about Object Identifiers.

o Don't check validity of character strings hidden in octet strings.

p Pure ASN.1 output without encoding information.

r Print bits in BIT STRING as encoded in reverse order

s Syntax check only, don't dump ASN.1 structures.

t Display text values next to hex dump of data.

u Don't format UTCTime/GeneralizedTime string data.

w Set output width (default 80).

x Display size and offset in hex not decimal.
