Actually, an easier tool to use is dos2unix, which is available on most Linux boxes. Just type dos2unix [filename], and you should be all set.
- Russ Johnson Sabadell Spain -----Mensaje original----- De: Michael Cortes [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Enviado el: Thursday, August 19, 2004 1:36 PM Para: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Asunto: [PHP-DB] I have a CR-LF problem when pulling stuff out of my DB This may not be exaxtly PHP-DB related but it is a result of screwing something up <grin>. I pulled a bunch of data from a DOS formatted tab seperated file and now I am dumping back out into a text file (on linux). So, as you can imagine, I ended up with a bunch of ^M throughout the file. I plan on fixing this. The solution is easy enough. I just need to remember to open the text files in vim and save as unix files. However, I now have an immediate need. I want to open these five files in vim and find and replace the ^M in every instance. I know how to find and replace (:g/find//s/replace/g). But I cannot get the ^M in the string. If I actually hit <ctrl-m> it reads as a return; if I type ^M using the shift-6 then it looks for the actual characters. Can anyone help? -- Michael Cortes Fort LeBoeuf School District 34 East Ninth Street PO Box 810 Waterford PA 16441-0810 814.796.4795 -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
