[PCB_FORUM] Re: Allegro script problem

Try searching for the ^ or the M with a carriage return
after it "M"-ctrl-V-"return".
There are always new ways to try to find them.
Or just go down a line at a time and delete them.
Slow but effective.
That's the power behind vim.

Thanks for the response Kevin.  I type "/" (to search), hold down the "Ctrl"
and "v" key, then hit the Enter (Return) key.  It says at the bottom
"Pattern not found: "[CNTL-V][m]".  Somehow it is like they are not a "^M",
but they are not two separate characters in the file.  I'm really stumped.

Thanks again!
