    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] [--version] file...
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           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
           files.
    
    
    

    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 characters
               long, instead of the default 4.
    
           -o  Like -t o.  Some other versions of strings have -o act like -t d
               instead.  Since we can not be compatible with both ways, we simply
               chose one.
    
           -t radix
           --radix=radix
               Print the offset within the file before each string.  The single
               character argument specifies the radix of the offset---o for octal,
               x for hexadecimal, or d for decimal.
    
           -e encoding
           --encoding=encoding
           -V
           --version
               Print the program version number on the standard output and exit.
    
           @file
               Read command-line options from file.  The options read are inserted
               in place of the original @file option.  If file does not exist, or
               cannot be read, then the option will be treated literally, and not
               removed.
    
               Options in file are separated by whitespace.  A whitespace
               character may be included in an option by surrounding the entire
               option in either single or double quotes.  Any character (including
               a backslash) may be included by prefixing the character to be
               included with a backslash.  The file may itself contain additional
               @file options; any such options will be processed recursively.
