emacs - dos2unix

Posting, since I always forget this:
Let’s fix the nastier problem first. When you find a file corrupted with half LFs and half CRLFs, strip out the ^M (CR) characters with a quick search and replace. Run M-% (query-replace) and substitute C-q C-m with nothing. C-q runs quoted-insert and is useful for inserting control characters (e.g. ^M, entered as C-m). Afterwards hit the exclamation point (!) to tell query-replace to replace all matches with no questions.
