Please help, this is really important. I was told that i could get rid of the ^m symbols at the end of the lines in my web page's html code by using sed. They said to execute sed "s//^m^m" index.html > index.html or something like that. This got rid of everything in the file. I really need this back, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
OP, you've gotten all good advice---probably the best is the "you do have backups, don't you?". As you learned the hard way, sed(1) stands for "stream editor"; and it's impossible to make the river flow in a circle. Too bad....
I'd probably check my original advice again, and then complain if this wasn't noted. We certainly don't need folks posting bogus info in the Internet ;-) I've a note in $HOME in ALL CAPS reminding me of this sed, I mean sad, fact after a similar mistake some time back.
Someone recomended dosunix (from ports) which is fine; please be aware of the fact that the same quid pro quo applies:
$dosunix foobar foobar
will still give you an empty file.
