Okay :-) thanks. I didn't realize that happens a lot with the "^M".
They showed up again in a file last night but not the continuous
single line. Then they were gone without me doing anything. I have
never actually seen them when opening the actual file. Only when doing
a shell command that out puts to the screen. Like grep, cat, head,
tail etc. I have also never seen them in a file created when using a
redirect away from the screen.
