Deleting non ASCII characters


Hey, I have some non ASCII characters in my script which is causing my Apache server not able to run the script. My question is, how would I take out the non ASCII characters? I am going from a Windows box to a RHL box, and I tried uploading the file in ASCII mode but it didn't work. I really don't want to have to re-write the script.

Thanks

Edit: hopefully this is in the right forum topic, if not, sorry.

^M?

What kind of non ascii characters are you seeing? Try transfering the file over as binary.

Now do you see ^M at the end of each line? DOS text and unix EOL characters are different. DOS uses both a line feed and a carriage return but unix only uses a lf.

There probably is a program called dos2unix on your linux box. If not you can find it on the web.

It looks like I am not seeing any non ASCII characters. Okay, let me explain what has happened:

I have been getting a 500 error with Apache and the reason for that was the script... I found a script on the Internet and directly copied and pasted it into Kate and it worked. So I assumed that it was non ASCII characters that was causing the problem... Well, that doesnt look right. I looked opened the script in Kedit and I didnt see any characters that shouldnt be in it. I ran the script from the terminal, and it worked. Do you have any suggestions for what I should do?

Thanks
