These are a few options:
(1) In most shells, you can type a ^M character as part of a filename by
prefixing the ^M character with ^V.
(2) Use tab completion. Type the first part of the filename and hit
the TAB key. The shells which support tab completion will fill in
the remaining bits of the filename in the 'correct' way.
(3) Use a GUI file manager or the `dired' mode of GNU Emacs to delete
