NLX,Strings or Head Examples

The following are examples of Text Tools STRINGS, HEAD
or NLX of Penta Text Tools or Tri Text Tools.

Each command line is followed by a description of what the
command line does.

	HEAD -T -l2 *.txt

can show the Tail of all files *.txt for 2 lines.

	STRINGS -w -r *:\*.doc

will have STRINGS extract Text strings to include White Space
(-w) with Recursive exploration (-r) in all files on all drives
(*:\) having a standard Word Processor extension (*.doc).

The strings would be made visible on the screen.

	STRINGS -w -r *:\*.doc > s.o

will do the same as the previous example but redirect (>) its
output into a file named "s.o" that could then be compressed and
placed onto a floppy disk or mail attachment to be sent
elsewhere for examination.

	NLX *:\*.txt

will have NLX translate any file to have its lines readable by
the usual DOS standard in all files having a TXT extension in
the current directory (*.txt)

The files would be visible on the screen.  No editing would
occur.
