Control Characters in Windows GVim

Instead of control-v to escape control characters, you must type control-q. This is because GVim respects the windows platform standard cut-copy-paste keyboard accelerators.

Converting to dos-format

  • Edit the file
  • Re-edit the file, forcing dos mode: :e ++ff=dos
  • Update the file to dos mode: :update
  • Write changes: :w

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
