[Bioperl-l] problems with perling Makefile.PL
09 Feb 2002 08:29:12 +0000
Hmmm... My copy of 0.7 CVS Makefile.Pl does not contain any carriage
returns. They should not matter, either..
Anyway, you should be able to get rid of them by typing:
perl -pi -e 's/\015//' Makefile.PL
or more UNIXy way of doing this is
tr -d '\r' < Makefile.PL > newMakefile.PL
and then rename the files.
I hope this helps.
