Wow, that works too. Hmph. I think bvi led me astray...my apologies.
Seems like it won't show me past 2.3GB for whatever reason (I guess
that is a buffer limitation, it certainly didn't barf at me).

I just did `tail -n 100 data.jar > out` and then bvi'ed that and I see
it. (od as well).

I am truly sorry for the noise (bad day),
