Got a script with ^M at the end of each line because the file came from a dos machine?  With perl you’ll get something like:

/usr/bin/perl^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

First of all open this file in vi in binary mode:

vi -b yourscipt.file

Then after typing colon type the following:


NOTE. To get the ^M do NOT use ^ and M.  Use control+V then immediately control+M.

Then [enter].  Then to save and exit:

:wq [enter]

Job done!
