Save a text file in Unix dos style or unix style
Question: I've got a DOS style text file on my Linux box, when I open it in vi and save it, vi reports 'saved (dos)'. How can I make vi save it in unix style?
VI automatically detects the format of a text file (DOS, Unix, Mac) and it tells that at the command line. To change the format use the :set fileformat= command and write the file then as shown below.
If you have multiple control-Ms at the end of a line that you want to be removed, try the search and replace command (see below).
