NAMEod - dump files in octal and other formats
SYNOPSISod [OPTION]... [FILE]...
od --traditional [FILE] [[+]OFFSET [[+]LABEL]]
Write an unambiguous representation, octal bytes by default, of FILE to standard output. With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.
Pre-POSIX format specifications may be intermixed, they accumulate:
For older syntax (second call format), OFFSET means -j OFFSET. LABEL is the pseudo-address at first byte printed, incremented when dump is progressing. For OFFSET and LABEL, a 0x or 0X prefix indicates hexadecimal, suffixes maybe . for octal and b multiply by 512.
TYPE is made up of one or more of these specifications:
SIZE is a number. For TYPE in doux, SIZE may also be C for sizeof(char), S for sizeof(short), I for sizeof(int) or L for sizeof(long). If TYPE is f, SIZE may also be F for sizeof(float), D for sizeof(double) or L for sizeof(long double).
RADIX is d for decimal, o for octal, x for hexadecimal or n for none. BYTES is hexadecimal with 0x or 0X prefix, it is multiplied by 512 with b suffix, by 1024 with k and by 1048576 with m. Adding a z suffix to any type adds a display of printable characters to the end of each line of output. -s without a number implies 3. -w without a number implies 32. By default, od uses -A o -t d2 -w 16.
