I must be going *insane*!

in reply to Debugging: What's going on here?

I used a carriage-return-stripping script on this "Hello, World" script, and then there were no errors. But I'm editing it in VI (well, VIM), and usually these pesky characters show up as ^M. But they weren't visible. How strange. I feel sooo foolish, though. Why couldn't I see those darn \r's?

    vim automatically recognizes DOS-style end-of-lines and treates them correctly. To force it to use unix-style EOLs, set the "filetype" variable to "unix":
    :set ff=unix
    Then write the file. It will write it in Unix format. If you set ff=unix before loading a file, it should show the \r's as ^M.
