I'm looking for a way to display hidden characters like newline and tab characters in emacs. I am NOT trying to convert the characters, just display them in the current buffer.
In vi(m), I can do this with the
:set list command. Additionally, I can customize the appearance of the characters something like this:
set listchars=tab:▸\ ,eol:¬
This makes it easy to see tabs and where new lines start. I desperately need this feature in emacs as well, can someone provide it? Many thanks.
