       strings - extract printable strings

       strings [ file ...  ]

       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), inclu-
       sive, and all other characters from value 00A0 to FFFF.	Strings reports the decimal  off-
       set  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.
