Is there a command that would let me see ASCII values of characters outputted from a program?

Say I pipe in a NUL character and a p, could I get a 0 and a 112 out?

Probably hexdump or printf. – Bob Jun 23 '13 at 9:32

You can use od -t d1 to output the ascii values of a file. When using this, he starts the first column with the offset within the stream (the adress), when you dont need it, you can pipe it into cut -d \ -f 2- or similar.
