Previous template Next. I had Google the question and that windows version of BC do have the option. Looking forward helps, thanks. Tags: None. By default, it is disabled, so you should already be ignoring the line ending character.

Note, this option is to ignore the character itself which is different between OS's. It does not ignore where the line break occurs, aka comparison over multiple lines. If you are still having trouble, would it be possible to get a screenshot example of the difference you are seeing reported? Comment Post Cancel.
So happy for you, Microsoft, \r\n
Hi, Aaron. The procedures here should work in Vim 7. First ensure you have read the file with the appropriate file format. After reading with the correct file format, the buffer may still contain unwanted CR characters.

Every line in a text file should have a terminator for example, a dos file should end with CRLF. When reading a file, Vim accepts the last line as a normal line, even if it has no terminator. Normally, Vim writes a terminator after every line, including the last.
For rare occasions, it is possible to save a file with no terminator after the last line:. The above only works in Unix, and must be manually triggered.
With some scripting, it is possible to automatically preserve a missing end-of-line on any file format. Some obsolete dos files use Ctrl-Z as an end-of-file character. These steps are required when converting each file:.

If all lines in a file end with LF-only, the file can be converted to use CRLF endings by reading as unix and writing as dos. However, if some lines end with CRLF, reading a file as unix will keep each CR in the buffer, and writing the file using any format will write each CR to the file, as if it were a normal character.click

When writing, line endings are added, so any CR characters that were in the original file, will be written in addition to line endings. Similarly, if LF is encountered, it is removed, and the preceding text is regarded as a line. Under Unix, you may find that a Vim script does not work because you have downloaded a script that contains CR characters.
If you put, say, script.
To fix, you need to convert the file to unix format. The following attempt to convert the file to unix format does not work:. You perform the following to convert it to unix format, then perform further edits:. The first two steps above are correct, and the file will initially be written in unix format. However, the buffer is still marked as dos format, so the :w will overwrite the file using CRLF line endings. However, if you are going to edit the file, you need to use these commands:. This will work if 'fileformats' includes dos and if the files have only CRLF line endings.
If :w is used to write the buffer, nothing useful will be achieved because the CR characters will be written to the file. You may find a discussion of other techniques for handling line endings elsewhere.
Some drawbacks of other procedures are mentioned here. You can specify a file format for a particular file by inserting a modeline in that file.
For example, in file my. In general, using a modeline is useless in this context, although it may help if the file format is correctly detected when the file is read, because the next write will save the file in the preferred format specified in the modeline. However, the modeline does not avoid problems, and may make problems worse. For example, if file my. If you now save the file, each line will be written with a CRLF ending. While this may be helpful as a quick workaround when viewing a file, in general, it is a misguided approach because the characters are hidden, but present, which will inevitably cause trouble when editing.
In addition, it is much better to correctly handle the problem rather than temporarily hide it. Several tools are available to convert files from one type of line ending to another. These need to be run at the command line, and are not related to Vim.
