Programs written in the Object Pascal (Delphi) programming language, have their strings stored in the executable file as Pascal strings. A Pascal string (or P-string) is a string that is internally stored with a length-prefix: an integer that counts the number of characters inside the string.

When analyzing Delphi malware, it is useful to extract its Pascal strings (in stead of extracting all strings). You can do this now with an update to my strings.py tool.

I've also recorded a video showing this new feature:
