    Can you provide more details on this ?
    If you need to access block of a file - You should learn File System Internals
    which FS you are using?
    Check this for FS docs:
    Softpanorama Filesystems Webliography

    If you using ext2/ext3 there are plenty of useful docs out there in google - -
    You can also check out my docs here
    SourceForge.net: Kick starting EXT File System

    Happy Coding

    "man dd" for all the detail you'll need. And then "man od" for manipulating the output from dd.
