NAME

strings - print the strings of printable characters in files. 

SYNOPSIS

strings [-afovV] [-min-len]
        [-n min-len] [--bytes=min-len]
        [-t radix] [--radix=radix]
        [-e encoding] [--encoding=encoding]
        [-] [--all] [--print-file-name]
        [-T bfdname] [--target=bfdname]
        [--help] [--versionfile... 

DESCRIPTION

For each file given, GNU strings prints the printablecharacter sequences that are at least 4 characters long (or the numbergiven with the options below) and are followed by an unprintablecharacter. By default, it only prints the strings from the initializedand loaded sections of object files; for other types of files, it printsthe strings from the whole file.

strings is mainly useful for determining the contents of non-textfiles. 

OPTIONS

-a
--all
-
Do not scan only the initialized and loaded sections of object files;scan the whole files.
-f
--print-file-name
Print the name of the file before each string.
--help
Print a summary of the program usage on the standard output and exit.
-min-len
-n min-len
--bytes=min-len
Print sequences of characters that are at least min-len characterslong, instead of the default 4.
-o
Like -t o. Some other versions of strings have -oact like -t d instead. Since we can not be compatible with bothways, we simply chose one.
-t radix
--radix=radix
Print the offset within the file before each string. The singlecharacter argument specifies the radix of the offset---o foroctal, x for hexadecimal, or d for decimal.
-e encoding
--encoding=encoding
Select the character encoding of the strings that are to be found.Possible values for encoding are: s = single-7-bit-bytecharacters (ASCII, ISO 8859, etc., default), S =single-8-bit-byte characters, b = 16-bit bigendian, l =16-bit littleendian, B = 32-bit bigendian, L = 32-bitlittleendian. Useful for finding wide character strings. (land b apply to, for example, Unicode UTF-16/UCS-2 encodings).
-T bfdname
--target=bfdname
Specify an object code format other than your system's default format.
-v
-V
--version
Print the program version number on the standard output and exit.
@file
Read command-line options from file. The options read areinserted in place of the original @file option. If filedoes not exist, or cannot be read, then the option will be treatedliterally, and not removed.

Options in file are separated by whitespace. A whitespacecharacter may be included in an option by surrounding the entireoption in either single or double quotes. Any character (including abackslash) may be included by prefixing the character to be includedwith a backslash. The file may itself contain additional@file options; any such options will be processed recursively.
