Hello Don,

We are transferring files from a new ftp server hosted on a unix/linux system.

The transfer is using ascii mode

If you look at the ascii file there are CRLF (0A0D) at the end of each line

The native line ending of UNIX style text files is only LF, no CR.

FTP I know about clients assume the following rules in ASCII mode:

LF = UNIX/Linux
CR/LF = DOS/Windows
CR = Classic Macs (Pre OS X)

Thus, the client doesn't expect "excess" CRs and passes them untreated, even in ASCII mode.

We have added some code to replace the hex 0D with a blank and this has enabled the file to be processed but I have not been able to find any other option.

The cleanest option is to place a corrected file on the Linux server. You can delete excess CR characters with tr -d '\r' < infile > outfile

Probably there are other choices how to get the initial file right from the start?

With files that we ftp from a windows server there is no end of line character at all as per the following example

See above: Because the file adheres to the platform standard rules.

:wq! PoC
