Which is not neccesarily a good idea if you ever intend to use that file
Windows again. Here is the deal. Different OS's have diffrent views of a
file. UNIX uses a LF to delimit the end of the line (EOL). MacOS and
AOS/VS use a
CR to delimit EOL (never thought there was anything in common with those
you (-;). DOS derivitive OS's use an end of line sequeunce (instead of one
character) to delimit EOL, and that sequence si CR LF (and we will not talk
VMS RMS (-;).
All that being said if the program that ultimately needs to use the text
on Windows (which is a child of DOS [that's it we will start calling
son of DOS, kind of like son of sam...]) you may have unexplained and
occur if you remvoe its carriage returns. On intermediate solution, if you
the pesky carriage returns removed temporarily in UNIX, is to use a program
unix2dos and dos2unix.
