Pesky ^M

22 March 2003

Some files (often created under DOS/Windoze) have a \^M on the end of the line. This is okay under DOS/Windows but it is an ugly pain under a real OS (such as FreeBSD). To remove the \^M for a directory of files you can use the following script:

`perl —pi —e “s/r//g’`

It works a treat.
