Hello everyone, I'm very new to BSD & this mailing list so please
forgive me should I post incorrectly.

Here are some links that may help you with removing the ^M character
from any file!!

http://www.unixblog.com/quick_unix_tips/remove_m_with_vi.php - I like
this one personally, because I've used it before & it worked!!

| dos2unix (converters/unix2dos in ports) is an easy route (dos2unix
