For each file given, GNU
strings prints the printable
character sequences that are at least 4 characters long (or the number
given with the options below) and are followed by an unprintable
character. By default, it only prints the strings from the initialized
and loaded sections of object files; for other types of files, it prints
the strings from the whole file.
strings is mainly useful for determining the contents of non-text
stringshave `-o' act like `-t d' instead. Since we can not be compatible with both ways, we simply chose one.
