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.

Basically I'm supposed to search for the first string of hex code and replace it, I don't know if it is hex or not.
