Folks, whatever I do, I cannot about this error “line 17: found character that cannotstart any token” - basically I have to fix every single line when I copy paste in VI. I have tried Visual Mode - pls help. I know this is ridiculously basic, but I cannot get it right.
:% s,\t, ,g
:set paste to copy paste in VI editor.
Alternatively you can force spaces as tabs with
:set expandtab and then force a
:retabto change all existing tabs. A few keystrokes that save current and upcoming headaches.
appreciate it guys ! I’ll try this
@Paolo I like your trick the best !!! Thank you all
