removed -- I already knew that part, but thanks for the nice
Would you mind explaining what this expression mean exactly?? I could use
your explanation to apply in other cases in the future ...
map `` /\/\/^Mlr*A */^[
I assume '\/\/' means '//' and ^M is the EOL character (the delimiters of
the line I wanna change, perhaps??). Now, what about the other
characters?? If you could explain that, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks for your help so far, and thanks in advance for your "next msg" !!
