There are multiple possibilities: 1) Use a shell which supports tab completion, and tab-complete the entry. 2) Embed the '^M' using '^V''^M' (type ctrl-v then ctrl-m.) 3) Use shell globbing (if the file is abra^Mcadabra, type: ls abra* rm abra* (only if the above matched exactly what you want to delete.)
