Does anyone know how to remove ^M (newline) characters using Java? Could you please show me the snippet? I am using java version 1.3, so I couldn't use java.util.regex.

Thanks a lot,
Annie

Let's start with the "more typing" solution. There are shorter ones but this one will get you started. In this forum we often give broad hints and send you looking in the API for details ...


Look at the API docs for String to see if you can find "position of" and how to get the part of a string up to position i, the part of a string after position i. Take a shot at some code and let us see how it works.

Thanks Stan for your reply. I was confused by the "^M" in the unix text file. After I replaced it with "\r\n", everything works now.
