Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Greetings wise monks, I hope you can help with a small problem. I write many of my Perl scripts on Windows and store them on CVSNT, but occasionally the CVS server ignores how I initially checked in my file with just LF characters and insists placing a CRLF character at the end of each line. This breaks my scripts when executed on the FreeBSD server with errors like : -
: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
I know how to strip out these characters using various command line scripts etc but I was hoping for a more permanent solution.
