In vi, you may search for control characters by typing
/^[xxx] where ^ means [ctrl-v] and xxx is an ascii code. Useful for matching line-endings (a nice shortcut is
/^[enter]). Mac files look like one long line in vi, but if you have vim just add a
set fileformats=unix,mac,dos to your .vimrc and vim will behave nicely.
To batch convert line endings in the shell:
tr "\r" "\n" < mac.txt > unix.txt
Or to get grep to actually work in Mac files:
tr "\r" "\n" < mac.txt | grep 'text'.
