Hi Al l,

I have a question with regards to od.  In Solaris, the command "od -c ." 
will give ascii representation to the file names that are held by the 
directory.  In RH6.1 this same command does not work the same way.  I have 
to use the following "od -c *" which after reading the man page, gives 
information about the *contents* of the file.  Is there a similar command 
in RH6.1, that when given, will display actual filenames in ascii that are 
held in the directory?

The reason I'm asking is that I realize that the inode table does not carry 
information about the filename but the directory in which file is written 
to does.  I just want verify this.
