in reply to newlines for windows from unix

On a related note - how can I strip out Windows newlines from the WordPad-compiled files I now1 intend using in Linux?



1: In other words, they already exist. If I were writing them now, I'd write them in a Linux text editor.

    I have a script, chmod +x, in ~/bin:
    #!/usr/bin/perl -i -p tr/\015//d;
    and I run it like: ugly_whoze_file Jeroen

    May I suggest that you use a proper text editor in windows. That way your text files are not stored with the windows new line rubbish on the end.

    I use conText which I downloaded for free from the internet and which I can highly recommend (nothing can be too bad if it is free, but this is truely good ;)).

    As to your question. I have a script loops through each line of files doing a sub for 012 and 015, replacing them with nothing. In that way you remove any newlines present. Then add an 'if' keying on $^0 eg if($^0 eq 'wnt'){..... to check the OS and add the suitable newline.

    This is clunky but simple to write and quaranteed to work.

    Hope that this helps.
