Yeah, I didn't know how to easily get NUL bytes in the stream without
printf, and once I was using printf the EOF HEREDOC no longer had a
useful purpose.  In the first testcase, since there were only
printable characters in the expected output, a HEREDOC worked well.  I
guess I could have just used printf for both testcases, but having the
literal output shown where it's possible for a human to read it seemed
like an advantage worth capitalizing on.  If anyone feels strongly
that I should use printf for both tests, I can switch them though.

Thanks for taking a look!
