Description

Once in a while I will download a config file that contains ^M characters at the end of each line. This can easily be fixed using vi.

  • Open the text file:
    vi ~/somefile.txt
    
  • Then use the following command to delete all matches of ^M; make sure to use CTRL+V and CTRL+M to create the ^M character, or else nothing will happen:
    :%s/^M//
