I got the string objects from a Ghidra project using this code:

 l = list()
def callback(s):
ss = StringSearcher(currentProgram, 5, 1, False, True)
ss.search(None, callback, True, monitor)


got it from the thread How to use findStrings flat API (#1964).

The problem is that in order to get the actual string, a Memory object is needed as a param of the getString() function.

I'm not really sure how to create this object or what it exactly represents… any right way/good example for this situation?

Ok I got it apparently currentProgram has a get attribute that returns said Memory (MemoryMapDB): StringObj.getString(currentProgram.getMemory())
