VI / VIM: Show end of the lines

In order to have a dollar sign at the end of each line in VI / VIM editor, set the following parameter while editing:

:set list

Every line will be terminated by a $:

       vim - Vi IMproved, a programmers text editor$
       v^Hvi^Him^Hm [options] [file ..]$
       v^Hvi^Him^Hm [options] -$
       v^Hvi^Him^Hm [options] -t tag$
       v^Hvi^Him^Hm [options] -q [errorfile]$
       g^Hgv^Hvi^Him^Hm g^Hgv^Hvi^Hie^Hew^Hw e^Hev^Hvi^Him^Hm e^Hev^Hvi^Hie^Hew^Hw$
       r^Hrv^Hvi^Him^Hm r^Hrv^Hvi^Hie^Hew^Hw r^Hrg^Hgv^Hvi^Him^Hm r^Hrg^Hgv^Hvi^Hie^Hew^Hw$
       V^HVi^Him^Hm  is a text editor that is upwards compatible to Vi.>It can be used$
       to edit all kinds of plain text.  It is especially useful  for  editing$
       There  are a lot of enhancements above Vi: multi level undo, multi win-$
       dows and buffers, syntax highlighting, command line  editing,  filename$
       completion,   on-line   help,   visual  selection,  etc..   See>-":help$
       vi_diff.txt" for a summary of the differences between V^HVi^Him^Hm and Vi.$
       While running V^HVi^Him^Hm a lot of help can be obtained from the  on-line  help$
       system,>with the ":help" command.  See the ON-LINE HELP section below.$
       Most often V^HVi^Him^Hm is started to edit a single file with the command$
>--    vim file$
       More generally V^HVi^Him^Hm is started with:$
>--    vim [options] [filelist]$
       If the filelist is missing, the editor will start with an empty buffer.$
       Otherwise  exactly  one out of the following four may be used to choose$
       one or more files to be edited.$
