comment Why did “argument can be squisehd against option” prevail over “argument is always separate”?
Argument squishing was prevalent before POSIX. In fact, AT&T's Unix Labs had proposed a flag and option syntax that getopt() had pretty faithfully implemented by 1988. I can't really cite any docs, but that's when I got my first real Unix(tm) machine, and there was a manual section on the subject.

comment Characters visible in vi, but not in cat.
@sree - cat just writes bytes (not characters!) to stdout. The way you invoked cat, stdout was the TTY of the terminal emulator. That TTY or the terminal emulator chose not to show the ASCII-Nul bytes and confused you.
