I am  a newbee to LInux CNC. I need some help getting past the  "Warning: File contains DOS-style line endings."

I am trying to configure LInuxcnc to work with a VistaCNC P4 S pendant. I keep getting the error "Warning: File contains DOS-style line endings."
I have saved the file vc-ps4.hal in linux but the error still comes up. I have looked at the file in Notepad++ and it has CRLF after each line. 

Is there a specific file format I need to save the file in?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Dos/windows style is CR + LF
Linux (Unix) style is LF only.

That can be quickly changed when using notepad++ or programmer's notepad.

There is a command line program called dos2unix which will clean it up
You will need to install it with: sudo apt install dos2unix
If you must open a file on Windows, use notepad++ and ensure the line endings are set for linefeed only in the settings.

You can use geany in Linux to change it as well.

Note that if you email the file to yourself, sometimes Google chrome sees fit to change the line endings (assuming during its virus scan). At least it used to.

Mine is working under 2.8.4.  This is the contents of my vc-postgui.hal
net axis_0_max_vel vc-p4s.ini.0.max.vel => ini.0.max_velocity
net axis_1_max_vel vc-p4s.ini.1.max.vel => ini.1.max_velocity
net axis_2_max_vel vc-p4s.ini.2.max.vel => ini.2.max_velocity
net axis_3_max_vel vc-p4s.ini.3.max.vel => ini.3.max_velocity
net axis_4_max_vel vc-p4s.ini.4.max.vel => ini.4.max_velocity
net axis_5_max_vel vc-p4s.ini.5.max.vel => ini.5.max_velocity
net spindle-speed hm2_5i25.0.encoder.00.count
In my vc-p4s.hal I only have 3 axis setup

setp axis_0_max_velocity [JOINT_0]MAX_VELOCITY
setp axis_1_max_velocity [JOINT_1]MAX_VELOCITY
setp axis_2_max_velocity [JOINT_2]MAX_VELOCITY

I don't know if any of this will help.  Maybe you could comment it out if you don't have that many axis.

Our files are the same except for line "net spindle-speed hm2_5i25.0.encoder.00.count"

I commented out axis 4 and 5, the app loads. The pendant is now working.
I had previoulsy commented out line 5.

Thanks for your help,
Wayne

I'm using a 1.8kw servo motor as a spindle and it has an encoder so that is what the extra line in mine is for.

I wonder why I don't get the error you were getting? I only have a mill with XYZ. Oh well, I guess if it works don't break it.

Im using Axsis 4 axsis GUI. That may be why I had to comment out the 5th and 6th axsis.

So far I can't get Gmoccapy gui to work.

Thanks again for your insight and help. This is my first attempt at installing Linuxcnc. My previous version was pre installed by Sherline.
