    The copy of the man pages I have for cat (GNU coreutils 6.9.92.4-f088d-dirt January 2008) says this: "-v, --show-nonprinting
    " use ^ and M- notation, except for LFD and TAB;"
    it doesn't strip control characters, but maps them to a different form. The FreeBSD entry for cat has a similar, but not identical description for the -v option.
