vi to edit DOS format test files:
Note my vi ( 6.0z ALPHA) auto does this, so you must have an older one?
Note my less also handles dos file correctly.
Note also to convert dos files to unix you can do:
tr -d '\r' < file.dos > file.unix
There is a dos2unix command on my system also (redundant IMHO).
