Hi :)
Which OS?

How about search&replace the double first and then deal with the remaining singles?

Interesting problem:  An email text is received which you need to format for publication.
The email uses a carriage return at the end of each line, and a double carriage return
for paragraph spacing.  What I'd like to do is remove the cr's at the end of each line, so
the text can be justified, and turn the double cr's into paragraph controls, or just leave
as double cr's.  Obviously all this can be done a line at a time by hand, but it's a pain.
Is there any way someone can suggest to automate this?


Well, if I knew how to replace the doubles with a paragraph marker, I could do that.
Then if I knew how to delete the singles, I could do that also.
I'm not trying to be a wiseguy, I don't know how to do that.
The os is PCLinuxOs.
