CLEANUP DOS FILES


If you deal with DOS files and the "^M" character
always appears at the end of the line, here are
two ways to get rid of them.

If you edit the DOS text file with the "vi"
editor in UNIX, use the following from the
"vi" command line:

:%s/^V^M//g

From a Unix shell use the command:

% sed 's/^V^M//g' foo > foo.new

NOTE: ^V is control V and ^M is control M or Enter
