Issues with AIX newline characters on KSH files developed on Windows


To fix issues with the ^M from developing a .KSH file on windows and then uploaded to AIX:
1 - edit the file in vi (extremly useful vi cheatsheet found here: Vi Cheatsheet from LagMonster)
2 - do a substitution using the following keystrokes: :%s/[ctrlkey+v and ctrl-key+M]//g
This will appear as ...  :%s/^M//g … when you type it.
3 - save with :x

However, note that the command does not look like he says it does.  He reports the ctrl-v as printing this: :%s/^V^M//g.  For me, it did this: :%s/^M//g.
