Default grep e$ words2.txt doesn't work

Does anyone know why the command grep e$ words2.txt (shown on page 68) doesn't work? I know than it is supposed to print out all lines in words2.txt which end with e but for some reason it doesn't.

I have tried grep e\$ words2.txt and grep -E 'e$' words2.txt but these don't work either.

Any suggestions? This is really starting to bug me.

Default

Made a mistake forgot to use the following vi commands in order to change download files to unix format:

:set filename=unix
:wq

The files were previously msdos format(why?)

:)
