Decode OLE Tags

There is some Ruby software here that decodes OLE .msg files for Outlook. Here is the link:

[url removed, login to view]

Here is the official .msg file specification from Microsoft:

[url removed, login to view]%5BMS-OXMSG%[url removed, login to view]

If you open a .msg file you will see many streams. Here's an example:


















From my understanding, in this example:


1009 would be the "property number". But, I think somehow it is encoded and may actually be a different number (refer to Microsoft PDF spec or Ruby application, both of which seem to be processing that correctly).

I need to know how to decode this to obtain the correct "property" number, and would like it in Perl format in a modified version of this file:

[url removed, login to view]

I can supply some sample .msg files for you to test as well.
