Thanks alot everyone...I got it working.

I never realized how badly ^M was screwing me up all these years when 
trying to match with regular expressions. I wish there was a way to see 
all the end of the line characters, carriage returns and new line 
without having to guess if they exist and using trial and error for 
hours when doing regexp matches.
