okay I am having issues correcting the ^M and line feeds of a text file.
Let me explain. I transfered a text file that a friend sent me from
a windows machine. Now when I 'less' the file there are no new
lines appearing and '^M' appears where I would expect the new line
when I emacs the file - the file appears to be formatted correctly.
emacs claims its formatting is "Mac" and "Text" I dont see any ^M
markings in the emacs editor and all the new lines are where I
expect them to be.
What I can do to fix this problem? Is there an option in emacs or
is there an option from the shell?
There is also shell commands ... dos2unix, which I think Ubuntu has as
fromdos that will rewrite the files. I don't recall offhand what package
these are in.
I just loaded it, it is in it's own package.
