       od [OPTION]... [FILE]...
       od --traditional [FILE] [[+]OFFSET [[+]LABEL]]


       Write   an  unambiguous  representation,  octal  bytes  by
       default, of FILE to standard output.  With more  than  one
       FILE  argument,  concatenate  them  in the listed order to
       form the input.  With no FILE, or when  FILE  is  -,  read
       standard input.

       All  arguments  to  long  options  are mandatory for short

       -A, --address-radix=RADIX
              decide how file offsets are printed

       -j, --skip-bytes=BYTES
              skip BYTES input bytes first

       -N, --read-bytes=BYTES
              limit dump to BYTES input bytes

       -s, --strings[=BYTES]
              output strings of at least BYTES graphic chars

       -t, --format=TYPE
              select output format or formats

       -v, --output-duplicates
              do not use * to mark line suppression

       -w, --width[=BYTES]
              output BYTES bytes per output line

              accept arguments in traditional form

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit

   Traditional format  specifications  may  be  intermixed;  they
       -a     same as -t a,  select named characters

       -b     same as -t oC, select octal bytes

       -c     same as -t c,  select ASCII characters or backslash

       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, suf­
       fixes may be . for octal and b for multiply by 512.

       TYPE is made up of one or more of these specifications:

       a      named character

       c      ASCII character or backslash escape

              signed decimal, SIZE bytes per integer

              floating point, SIZE bytes per integer

              octal, SIZE bytes per integer

              unsigned decimal, SIZE bytes per integer

              hexadecimal, SIZE bytes per integer

       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 dis­
       play of printable characters to the end of  each  line  of
       output.   --string  without  a  number implies 3.  --width
       without a number implies 32.  By default, od uses -A o  -t
       d2 -w 16.
