in thread Wanted: humanly readable `script` output

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.

[TStanley]: I'm sitting in the airport in Tampa, Florida at the moment, getting ready to head home.
[talexb]: TStanley I'm flying to Vegas in two weeks time. After that flights leaving Vegas and Phoenix are late at night .. I've been hearing that it gets so hot that the air isn't dense enough for planes to take off. Weird. Guess you won't have that problem.
