I want to view char(13)-line-terminated files directly via mc.
Currently I can transform these file types to unix-text with:
cat <inputFile> | tr "\015" "\012" > LnxFile
so, I guess simply translating char(octal15=8+5=13) to char(10)
is all that's required.
But because I do this so often I don't want to have to create a
new file before I use mc to view/edit it.
mc's customisable menu can already do other similar smart jobs.
eg. the one existing menu entry is:--
0 Edit a bug report and send it to root
test -r /tmp/mail.$$ && mail root < /tmp/mail.$$
rm -f /tmp/mail.$$
.... or this one is close to my requirements:
t Run latex on file and show it with xdvi
latex %f && xdvi `basename %f .tex`.dvi
Q1. is the above bash syntax or sch....?
Q2. what mc.menu entry should I try to view my
char(13)-line-terminated files ?
I've started & tested as OK:
e Show ETH-oberon format
Thanks for any feedback,
