NAME            od  --  octal dump

SYNOPSIS        od name [ origin ]

DESCRIPTION     od dumps a file in octal, eight words per line

                with the origin of the line on the left.  If an

                octal origin is given it is truncated to 0 mod 16

                and dumping starts from there, otherwise from 0.

                Printing continues until an end-of-file condition

                or until halted by sending an interrupt signal.

                Since od does not seek, but reads to the desired

                starting point, od (rather than db) should be

                used to dump special files.
