Unbroken vertical bar


Hello,

I am trying to view a binary file using the strings command. I'm following a book. It says to type this:

# strings /bin/echo |more

When I type this at the tty the vertical bar shows as two vertical bars.

Thanks
Michelle

not sure what you mean but try this instead
strings /bin/arch | less

(there is a space b4 less and less is better imho)

output is a smaller file so here it is

lib/ld-linux.so.2
_Jv_RegisterClasses
__gmon_start__
libc.so.6
perror
puts
uname
_IO_stdin_used
__libc_start_main
GLIBC_2.0
PTRh
[^_]
[^_]
[^_]
arch

My keyboard has the "|" labeled as two bars. The only difference is the font used to display it.
