  od -tx1


The person who knows od usually goes 'od -x' but that produces word
dumps and not byte dumps.  Word dumps depend upon the endianness of
the underlying host.  If you want byte dumps then specify the size of
the data you want to dump.  Hence 'od -tx1'.  This is one of the FAQs
about od on the gnu.org site, which I maintain, actually.
