[ic] Serious Problem after reconfig!
Fri, 10 Nov 2000 15:53:36 -0800
Actually, rather than worry about vi when you telnet in, why not try this:
perl -pi -e "s/\r//g" catalog.cfg
strips those CR's right out. When I worked at an ISP we had to do this quite often for people who insisted on editing their perl CGI scripts in [Word/Note]pad. Give that a try.

You will probably need to telnet into you server space, then use a unix
text editor to fix the file - opening and then saving it with vi, ed, emacs
or pico may in itself "cleanse" the file. Just login with telnet, then:
Ctrl + O to save. You will then need to do a command line reconfig, or
just restart minivend.
Hope it works for you!
