The Cookbook uses the following example (listed on page 4)
x3 meaning to "ignore" 3 bytes (jump forwards), while Xm means to jump m bytes back.
A5 meaning to "get" 5 Ascii (space padded) bytes.
Another example would be to pack/unpack to/from binary or hexadecimal.
Similar for Hexadecimal...
Anyway, those were just the simple examples =)
