Re: [vox-tech] Problems with missing 'missing' file

Quoting Shwaine (shwaine@shwaine.com):

Which entirely misses my point that I was giving a general approach to 
cleaning up all endline problems.

But, since you are making a point of saying so, actually your reply
_did_ contradict my suggesting \r (and by implication, \n or whatever
else is required) as a search string, erroneously claiming that one
should use a literal CR if seeking to find ASCII 13 characters -- which,
as I pointed out, is a blunder and doesn't work.

Anyway, this is a poor use of my time at least, and I hope yours, too.

I'll be delighted to dispose of further interruptions more briefly.

> What's so obsessive about giving people the correct information....

Ironically, your suggestion of using a literal CR is greatly broken.
Check for yourself.

Meanwhile, sorry, have to do real work.
