    Default Strings does not work for big file

    I was trying to calculate DBID of oracle database according to the topic Oracle in World: How to Discover find DBID and following number 2) mechanism specified there that is using of strings keyword.

    My unfortunately my oracle database datafile is so big that I could not use strings keyword for searching.

    I used,
    strings datafilename_loc.

    It failed with big file size. What I will do now?
    How I can open file with strings?

    A few options come to mind. First, split the file up in to smaller pieces
    with 'split'.

    Another option, read in a small amount of the file and pipe it through
    strings. For one megabyte, for example:

    dd if=/path/to/your/file.ext bs=1024 count=1024 | strings | less

    Good luck.
