I don't know of a tutorial, but you can read about BPF (Berkeley Packet
Filter) on the TCPDump man page at: http://www.tcpdump.org/tcpdump_man.html 

You will quickly see that there is really no need to know hex unless you are
doing some complex filtering...

Does anyone know a good source for a tutorial on BFP filters?  Reading the 
man page has me crossing my eyes and growning.

I want to capture udp packets on port 53 to one host, including the entire 
payload.  I've figured out the hex address for the host, but the rest 
escapes me.
