Subject Re: error loading a mysqldump file
Date Tue, 24 Oct 2006 14:52:18 GMT
I know if I edit on windo and port to nix I will have <CR><LF> appended at end
of each line
for small files 
vi -b
will show you the extra CR and you can easily delete the CR (which show up as ^M) chars

for comprehensive treatment of entire files to unix run the dostounix utility
check out this link from the friendly folk from Santa Cruz for details
