If your installed "vi" command is actually "vim", it won't show the ^M
at the end of each line, if all lines have it. This is to facilitate
editing of DOS/Windows files under Linux. So, you may have to use
"cat -v rundig" to see if there are ^M characters. They can be stripped
using "mv rundig rundig.old; tr -d '\015' < rundig.old > rundig".
