134521New line not recognized
- Nov 16, 2012Hi!
I received a text file with tab-separated values. However, the
entire file is displayed in one line and vim shows ^M symbols
all over the text, which are U+000d characters (CR).
I ran a search-replace to replace them with <CTRL-V><CR> and the
file displays as it should. But what's the cause? Is the file
malformed? I thought CR is the usual way of encoding a line ending.
What do I need to change to make vim display the file correctly
without changing it?
What system might have saved the file? Usually I never have any
problems opening files from Windows or Mac.
The file in question can be downloaded here:
