I agree -- if this is a once-off problem, then just open the file in a Windows or Unix machine, re-save it, and the problem should be solved.
If the Mac user has BBEdit or BBEdit lite, one of the options they have is to save in Unix and Windows format, which fixes the problem simply. Of course if this is an ongoing thing, or if you don't have control over the mac user, or the opportunity to convert the files as above, then there seem to be some other ideas floating around this thread :) Justin French on 02/05/02 2:49 PM, eat pasta type fasta ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) wrote: > just a thought, mac line break is "\r" > > you can open and save it as unix that should get rid of the weird > problem, unless you need it to work for numerous uncotrolled file flow, > then replacing "\r" might work with a FOR loop.
