check file content with ascii codes

If you want to deeply check a file (spaces are spaces, commas, quotes, etc) you can have a look on the ascii codes as well with the hexdump command :

$ hexdump -C /etc/passwd
00000000 72 6f 6f 74 3a 78 3a 30 3a 30 3a 72 6f 6f 74 3a |root:x:0:0:root:|
00000010 2f 72 6f 6f 74 3a 2f 62 69 6e 2f 62 61 73 68 0a |/root:/bin/bash.|
00000020 64 61 65 6d 6f 6e 3a 78 3a 31 3a 31 3a 64 61 65 |daemon:x:1:1:dae|
00000030 6d 6f 6e 3a 2f 75 73 72 2f 73 62 69 6e 3a 2f 62 |mon:/usr/sbin:/b|
00000040 69 6e 2f 73 68 0a 62 69 6e 3a 78 3a 32 3a 32 3a |in/sh.bin:x:2:2:|
00000050 62 69 6e 3a 2f 62 69 6e 3a 2f 62 69 6e 2f 73 68 |bin:/bin:/bin/sh|

So, what do you think ?
