in thread Wanted: humanly readable `script` output

The copy of the man pages I have for cat (GNU coreutils 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.

Information about American English usage here and here. Floating point issues? Please read this before posting. — emc
