Looking for the "strings" command from *nix, but as a Java API. Does such a library or JAR exist? I've automated calling the strings *nix command, but would like to explore reverse engineering Java APIs / libraries.

  • Strings shouldn't be that difficult to completely reimplement in Java. Just keep a buffer of printable chars, print if you find u0000, clear if you find something non-printable. Repeat until all bytes of the binary are read. – Col-E Feb 1 at 7:12
