[utils] Strings in binaries - strings.exe

A while ago, I was searching through IIS DLL's looking for a specific error message. Like most things, there's my way and the easy way.

My way: a tiny SnippetCompiler special that creates a notepad friendly copy of any binary file. Posting the code in case it saves someone some time on a similar task.

The right way was probably to use strings.exe from Sysinternals, which can rip through a whole folder detecting string (ANSI and Unicode) of a minimum character length.
