I cannot get rid of the ^M characters at the end of each line when I write a file from my C code.  I am writing the application on a PC using Visual 5.0 and viewing the output files on Unix.  I have tried the binary call "fwrite" but
the characters end up there anyway.  How do I stop this?!
If I write the entire file in binary will that make any difference?

ees,

If you open the file in binary mode and append the '\n' character to each line, the the file will be in Unix format.
