Is there any flag to od to make it not output line numbers in the result?

  • It doesn't output line numbers (at least, none of my versions does). It starts each line with a byte offset into the file for that line. Is this what you want to remove? – roaima Mar 27 '15 at 17:14
  • Just try od | cut -b9- to only output from byte 9 on. – choroba Mar 27 '15 at 17:27

Assuming you mean the byte offset, from man od

   -A, --address-radix=RADIX
          output format for file offsets.  RADIX is  one  of  [doxn],  for
          Decimal, Octal, Hex or None

so for example od -An file
