Unix Tip #4344- February 1, 2014

STRINGS - OLD BUT A GOODIE


To check content of an object
file(binary file ) we can't use vi
or cat command, for that use strings
command.

% strings [name of binary file]

It will print all the printable strings
present in object file. Basically
strings command looks for ASCII strings
in executable file and print it.

Great for core files and other binary
error files
