    od  -  octal dump


    od [ -abcdox ] [ file ] [ [ + ]offset[ . ][ b ] ]


    _O_d dumps _f_i_l_e in one or more formats as selected by the
    first argument.  If the first argument is missing, -o is
    default.  The meanings of the format argument characters
    b  Interpret bytes in octal.
    c  Interpret bytes in ASCII.  Certain non-graphic characters
       appear as C escapes: null=\0, backspace=\b, formfeed=\f,
       newline=\n, return=\r, tab=\t; others appear as 3-digit
       octal numbers.
    d  Interpret words in decimal.
    o  Interpret words in octal.
    x  Interpret words in hex.
    The _f_i_l_e argument specifies which file is to be dumped.  If
    no file argument is specified, the standard input is used.
    The offset argument specifies the offset in the file where
    dumping is to commence.  This argument is normally inter-
    preted as octal bytes.  If `.' is appended, the offset is
    interpreted in decimal.  If `b' is appended, the offset is
    interpreted in blocks of 512 bytes.  If the file argument is
    omitted, the offset argument must be preceded `+'.
    Dumping continues until end-of-file.
