Does anyone know how to remove ^M (newline) characters using Java? I know how to do it in vi, but I need a way to strip them out using Java.

Gee, there are many ways. You can use regex in Java. In fact Java's regex flavor is much richer then vee eyes flavor. You can also mess around with lastIndexOf() or replace() from the String Class.
The simplest thing maybe trim() from the String Class.
