$ binwalk -h

Binwalk v2.3.4
Craig Heffner, ReFirmLabs

Usage: binwalk [OPTIONS] [FILE1] [FILE2] [FILE3] ...

Signature Scan Options:
    -B, --signature              Scan target file(s) for common file signatures
    -R, --raw=<str>              Scan target file(s) for the specified sequence of bytes
    -A, --opcodes                Scan target file(s) for common executable opcode signatures
    -m, --magic=<file>           Specify a custom magic file to use
    -b, --dumb                   Disable smart signature keywords
    -I, --invalid                Show results marked as invalid
    -x, --exclude=<str>          Exclude results that match <str>
    -y, --include=<str>          Only show results that match <str>

Extraction Options:
    -e, --extract                Automatically extract known file types
and a lot more .....
Xent chasing for firmware files, found loads of them installed, but only
$ binwalk  /lib/firmware/3com/typhoon.bin 

23711         0x5C9F          Copyright string: "Copyright (c) 2001 3Com Corporation"
 this one returned something more than just the headers (tried some 30 of them)
Giving the OK on seeing the command is not giving nay kind of error.
