Information in this document applies to any platform.
^M characters at the end of a line in a file represent the Windows way of signaling a new line (CR/LF). Unix (including Linux) signal the end of a line with a LF only, so this means the Unix/Linux OS isn't interpreting end of lines correctly. This can happen in several ways:
- You edited a file in Windows. Please note that opening the file and then saving it (without making any changes) is enough to cause this problem!
- You used FTP to transfer the file without setting it to binary mode first
- You inserted the character manually
Removing these can be done in several ways (see below)
