i seeking for the simplest way of extracting a string inside a binary file on linux (command line). As example in my case the string begins with offset 138 and ends with the first hex 00.

The last days i tried arround with hexdump and also read the documentation about several times. Sadly in all what i tried i only got as result the hex values together with the strings instead of the clean string.

So my question is, what could be the simplest solution? Should i more focus on a scripting language like python, php or is there something i don't know to reach it easier?

    You can do this simply by reading from the file at offset 138 into buffer until you reach 0x00 like so...

    // Open the file for read
    $fp = fopen($fileName, "rb");
    // Set the file pointer to a byte offset of 138 to begin reading
    fseek($fp, 138);
    $reached = false;
    $buffer = "";
    // Read into the buffer until we reac 0x00
    do {
        $buffer .= fread($fp, 8192);
        $end = strpos($buffer, "\x00");
        if ($end !== false || feof($fp)) {
            $str = substr($buffer, 0, $end);
            $reached = true;
    } while(!$reached);
    // $str will contain the string you're looking for
