Help me to write a program that will print arbitary input in a sensible way.
As a minimum it should print non-graphic characters in octal or hexadecimal according to local custom and break long text lines.

If you think that the input may contain non-graphic characters, just hexdump the file.

Yes indeed!

c ^= c is shorthand for

c = c ^ c

^ is the 'exclusive or operator' so in bitwise terms 0 0 and 1 1 become  0

it has the same effect as c = 0; when used the way I used it. (XOR of a number with itself has to give zero)

To be honest it might be bad practise, perhaps you'd be better off using c  = 0;
