fixing Mac line breaks w/ PERL (without blank lines)
Authored by: elindal on Aug 23, '01 01:37:48AM

Using this can result in there being blank lines between each and every line that was there before.

To prevent this use

alias fle="perl -pi -e 's/\r\n?/\n/g' "

The difference here is the n? which tells to to also replace existing n that is there as long as it is attached to a r.

I hope this helps people
