Shit. I forgot something... You may want to use this in a sequence to restore
the file:

$ echo '\0100\c'

According to the IRIX echo(1) manpage:

          \c   print line without new-line
          \0n  where n is the 8-bit character whose ASCII code is the 1-, 2-
               or 3-digit octal number representing that character.
