This tool helps with the tedious task of going through all your cages and
marking the items inside for dumping. This lets you get leftover seeds out of
cages after you tamed the animals inside. The most popular use, though, is to
strip the weapons and armor from caged prisoners. After you run
your dwarves will come and take the items to the garbage dump, leaving your
cages clean and your prisoners stripped bare.
If you don’t want to wait for your dwarves to dump all the items, you can use autodump to speed the process along.

Dumps all items out of the specified cages.
stripcaged items here --include-pets --include-vermin
Dumps loose items in the selected cage, including any tamed/untamed vermin.
Live tame (pets) and untamed vermin are considered items by the game. They are normally excluded from dumping since that risks them escaping or dying from your cats. Use these options to dump them anyway.
Items to be marked for dumping are unforbidden by default. Use this option to instead only act on unforbidden items, and leave forbidden items forbidden. This allows you to, for example, manually unforbid high-value items from the stocks menu (like steel) and then have
stripcagedjust act on the unforbidden items.
