I have a script within a very complex software package that uses the
command. Everything I Googled/read suggests that strings.exe comes from the
binutils package. The problem is that neither of the available versions
seem to actually contain strings.exe. It's not in /usr/bin; find can't turn
it up under /usr at all.
There's even this:
$ cygcheck -p strings.exe
Found 19 matches for strings.exe
And if I go to
2014-05-29 02:01 709661 usr/bin/strings.exe
Yet there's no strings.exe. I've even tried binutils packages from a few
If there's no fixed binutils package available, can someone shoot me a
strings.exe I can just fly into place for the time being?
