     NAME
          strings - extract printable strings

     SYNOPSIS
          strings [ file ... ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Strings finds and prints strings containing 6 or more con-
          secutive 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 char-
          acters 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.
