map {printf"%3d %2x %2s|",$_,$_,$_<32?'^'.chr$_+64:$_<127?chr$_:'^?'} +(0..127);

Cool (and useful) one-liner, replacing man ascii!

I added it to my ~/.bash/functions, with a few changes replace the quote chracters so it would be acceptable to bash. Also, added a newline for every 8 characters.

function ascii { perl -e ' map { printf q{%3d %2X %2s|%s}, $_, $_, $_<32 ? q{^}.chr($_+64) : $_<127 ? chr : q{^?}, ($_+1)%8 ? q{} : $/ } 0..127 ' }


PS: I tried making it a bash alias, but it was too much trouble working around all those quotes to prevent bash interpolating $_ etc!
