ok. ok. you got me.

I meant that it's reliable in the sense of no ambiguities trying to
determine if the stream is instruction code or shift-jis (which can
never be 100% reliable). The reliablity of the prog in q is not the
issue-- it's the reliability of knowing whether a sequence of bytes is a
string or not.

One thing I find that's neat about it is in class files there's all
sorts of neat URLs (given the URL happy nature of Java) embedded in
applets on the web often. (* granted, normal GNU "strings" will find
these too... except that it'll print a lot of garbage)
