Once upon a time there was a software developer writing a small tool to extract strings from binary files. He thought it interesting to see how it travels around the then young web and set it free to the wild.
That was back in 1996.
To my utter astonishment this little tool is still around out there and creates enough interest to create hits on this site.
To honor this and to avoid confusion for visitors coming here for this utility peek (and not some obscure cg related stuff) I created this page for a permanent home of PEEK.
Unfortunately I do no longer have the source code, so the binary form must suffice.
