bulk_extractor is a C++ program that scans a disk image, a file, or a directory
of files and extracts useful information without parsing the file system or
file system structures. The results are stored in feature files that can be
easily inspected, parsed, or processed with automated tools. bulk_extractor
also creates histograms of features that it finds, as features that are more
common tend to be more important.
bulk_extractor is distinguished from other forensic tools by its speed and
Optional dependancies include libewf (recognized if installed), afflib
(recognized if installed), and liblightgrep.
To add optional liblightgrep support:
When running bulk_extractor with lightgrep, use
"-x find -e lightgrep -F findlist.txt" in addition to regular options.
