I went with the defaults when installing cygwin. Which means I used
the recommended unix/binary line feed setting. It sounded like that
means I get no line-ending translation done by cygwin, which is fine.
So I open a .bat file and see a bunch of ^Ms at the end of each line.
Then I open a xml file and don't see them. I was expecting to see
^Ms again as the xml file, just like the bat file, was created in a
windows environment. Is this normal?
Another question... When I'm editing a file that has the ^Ms do I
leave them alone, or delete them? Will I be able to go back and forth
use vi via cygwin, and notepad/textpad via windows without harming the
