Very annoying: ^M


Hi,

I have some files on my Windows box that I zipped and transfered to my FreeBSD box where I unzipped them and plan to work on them. However (using vi as my editor) at the end of each line there is this: ^M. It's very annoying and distracting. Is there any way for me to remove this from my files? Example from one of the files so you can see what I mean:

Code:
<?include('prefix.php');?>^M
<?^M
$userLevel=0;^M
$printit=1;^M
$em="Your e-mail";^M
^M
if (isset($HTTP_COOKIE_VARS["username"]) && isset($HTTP_COOKIE_VARS["userpass"])) {^M
  $name=safevar($HTTP_COOKIE_VARS["username"]);^M
  $pass=safevar($HTTP_COOKIE_VARS["userpass"]);^M
} else {^M
  $name=null;^M
  $pass=null;^M

Open up vi in command mode and do the following in CMD mode (ESC):

:1,$ s/^M//g

To get the ^M do a ctrl-v then ctrl-m

Press enter and whala.. all gone. :wq! to quit and save and or Shift+ZZ will save and quit.

There's also a program called dos2unix that's included (or at least packaged) with most distros.

Yup but I never bother when I do most of my editing myself in vi. At times, I don't always trust the automated programs, probably why I do more administering in the CLI than a GUI..
