Well, your little program is not what he needs, because the file he has to work with has NO NEWLINES in the first place, so I suspect your addcr/rmcr would not do what he wants, which is to add a NL/CR after every 2048 bytes in the input. Your addcr/rmcr, though, is all done by my one single file called cr+-: : cr+- # adds CRs if not present, strips them if present # note: if you just cat this file, you miss its essence # if you cat -v this file, you see the _real_ ^Ms in it sed ' s-^M--g t s+$+^M+ t ' -- JP
