       od  -  octal dump

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

       Od  dumps  file	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 are:

       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 file 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 interpreted as octal bytes.  If `.' is appended, the offset is inter-
       preted  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.
