NAME
       strings - extract printable strings

SYNOPSIS
       strings [ file ...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       Strings finds and prints strings containing 6 or more consecutive
       printable UTF-encoded characters in a (typically) binary file, default
       standard input.  Printable characters are taken to be ASCII characters
       from blank through tilde (hexadecimal 20 through 7E), inclusive, and
       all other characters from value 00A0 to FFFF.  Strings reports the
       decimal offset within the file at which the string starts and the text
       of the string. If the string is longer than 70 runes the line is
       terminated by three dots and the printing is resumed on the next line
       with the offset of the continuation line.
