Using sed to remove control-M from a series of files

I program in DOS and LINUX and often transfer files back and forth.  When I take a file from DOS to LINUX, control-M characters are added at the end of each line.  While these can be removed in textedit one by one, I have a number of files and want to automate it.  I would guess that sed could remove the character from a group of files, but I have no idea how to do it.

You can use this in a script:

sed s/^V^M// < file.dos > file.unix
