I am not inclined to join in the IRC because of the large time difference. It
is 3:30 AM here and I am awake only because I have insomnia and I'll be back in
bed soon. How about discussing it in Or you can discuss it
without me on IRC, in which case let me know the result of your discussion.

If you'll forgive my ignorance, I am learning about od by reading the man page
from section 1posix. How do I learn about which features are XSI extensions?
