Hi Ken,
    I'm going to have to check my version of VIM. Usually when I edit a
DOS file with CRLF line terminators the VIM tells me that. This one
doesn't, maybe I need to do something in the rc file to turn that on. I
dumped the patch I have through od and sure enough CRLF. That is a four
letter word isn't it? :-( Thanks again. It seem you are pulling me out
of the fire quite often. Thanks a bunch. I appreciate it.
