carriage return symbols in the source code.

Postby pdela » Fri Feb 26, 2016 4:31 pm


my problem is that I've been producing a document in TexnicCenter and I sent it to a colleage for completion. The problem is that when he opens the source-file, with Aquamacs, I think. There are symbols in the place of carriage returns (^M)

I would like to know how to delete or how not to produce those symbols so my colleage is able to work in the source file

Many Thanks.

Which input encoding did you use for the file? Ideally utf8. The best and easiest way would be to tell your colleague which encoding you used. Then he just needs to open the file with the same encoding. Modern editors are easily capable of doing this so it shouldn't be much of a problem.
