Hello list,

 I have a few php config files that have the windows delimiter
character in them  ('^M') that I would like to get rid of. I'm trying
to use sed to do it, and for some reason I am not having any luck.

Here's the line that I'm trying to use:

 #sed -i '.bak' 's/^M//g' config.php

However when I have a look at the backup file that's been created with
this command, it looks like there was no effect:

<?php ^M/*   Global Variables   */^M        if(!defined('DS'))^M

I was wondering is someone had a tip on how to run this command
effectively in this situation.


GPG me!!
