I use \n, but the new line is not replaced.

I supposed the new lines contain 2 characters, \n and \l, but searching and replacing \l yields to no results as well.

@nixda This question is about looking for newlines, the other is about inserting newlines. –  Daniel Beck Jan 28 '13 at 7:01

Are you sure you enabled search-mode "extended"?

By the way, what kind of "new line" depends on the system you are working on. On Windows you might try and search for \r\n

\l -> matched lowercase letters (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…) –  Korenaga Jan 28 '13 at 6:34
    
\r is indeed the issue –  Jim Thio Jan 28 '13 at 6:45
    
how do you show the CR LF thingy anyway? –  Jim Thio Jan 28 '13 at 8:15
