in reply to Control M's with File::Copy

They are caused by Windows returns opened on a Unix system. For example after tranfering with FTP and using binary instaed of ascii mode.
You can remove them later on by using s/\r//g

    I've also seen them generated on a Unix system by certain programs. Another way to remove them would be using s/\015//g.
