Search replace with special characters

4 Jan

This is most common with ^M which are new lines in dos/windows.

(These are easily searched replaced using Ctrl-v then Ctrl-m)

Another way to do it is to use “ga” over a character, this will give you the character code.

Then you can do Ctrl-v <the character code> and this will work too.
