Every once in a while I learn this new linux command that I haven't seen yet (this used to happen daily but after a decade of linux using it's getting less frequent). Today I saw this handy od command. It's like cat but usefull for binary, hex and ascii dumping ;).

od -tx1 <filename>

You can test it out quickly on /dev/random like in the screenshot above.
