Why not just printf "C!"? However,

   echo 'C!' | od -N 2 -h | sed 's/[^1234]*//;s/2143/4321/p;d'

is somewhat tidier.

I suppose that calls for

   printf '\x43\x21' | od -h | sed 's/[^1234]*//;s/2143/4321/p;d'

although I doubt that very much will work on a non-ascii host. Might
be amusing to try if anyone has one though...
