bmore BVI

bmore is a filter that displays the contents of a binary file on the terminal, one screenful at a time. It normally pauses after each screenful, and prints --More-- at the bottom of the screen. bmore provides a two-line over­ lap between screens for continuity. If bmore is reading from a file rather than a pipe, the percentage of characters displayed so far is also shown.

bmore scrolls up to display one more screen line in response to a RETURN character; it displays another screenful in response to a SPACE character. Other commands are listed below.

The screen is divided in three sections or panes: The byte offset (extreme left), the hex pane (middle), and an ascii pane (right) which shows as printable characters those bytes in the hex pane. On an 80 column terminal there will be sixteen hex values and their ASCII values on each screen line (can be changed with the -n option).

Note that (as one would expect) the first byte has the offset 0 (zero).
