+1, i wasn't aware of the text representation. I was trying to decode the hexadecimal to ascii and wasn't getting the correct information. I used hex to text converter http://www.string-functions.com/hex-string.aspx and got the same result. Thank you !!

+1, for the nice explanation. I have one doubt: in the 2nd case when the shell opens the file does it pass the opened file contents to the standard input (keyboard) ?? ( I got confused with the term 'standard input of grep').

comment Masquerading as another user from sudoers file?
:o, I forgot to use second sudo and to add other user from the same group to visudo. Making the necessary changes solved the problem. So here are the log entries in /var/log/secure:- Mar 15 15:42:33 localhost sudo: jane : TTY=pts/2 ; PWD=/home/jane ; USER=paul ; COMMAND=/usr/bin/sudo cat /etc/sudoers Mar 15 15:42:33 localhost sudo: paul : TTY=pts/2 ; PWD=/home/jane ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/bin/cat /etc/sudoers

comment How to add self to sudoers list?
search for "oshirowanen" user in /etc/sudoers file: this file has 440 permission with root as owner/group owner: so you must be only able to view the file with superuser priviledges.

+1, got your point; I edited the file with vi command made the error purportedly saved the file. I was not able to open the file afterwards.
