Me neither ... never had the need to hex-view any file on unix, just use VI and you'll have a rough idea. If you look at an incorrectly transferrred (FTP'ed) file from Windows to Unix, it would show lots of control-M characters at the end of each line, in VI
In the case of *nix, it's easy since you have to remove characters, you can just remove them manually, if that ever would be a problem.
Of course, you can TR them, but better is to see why they are transferred incorrectly, and fix that. That would by the way also be my advice in this thread. Messing with these characters is a pain in the ... If some files are transferred incorrectly, I would be worried about other files as well.
