Type of string

Does anyone know what type of strings these are and where they can be found within a Mac OS X application?

example:  Path: /Library/iTunes/iTunes Plug-ins/Eyephedrine/Eyephedrine.bundle/Contents/MacOS/Eyephedrine

I'm not sure I really understand what you are asking.
You can use the 'strings' command to display the printable strings embedded in an application:

strings "/Library/iTunes/iTunes Plug-ins/Eyephedrine/Eyephedrine.bundle/Contents/MacOS/Eyephedrine"

Use 'strings -o'  (or 'strings -t') to have it print out the location in the program where the strings occur.
Use the command 'man strings' to get the full documentation.
