Ascii mode transfers
Posted on 2005-04-12
My web server is a debian linux machine, and I edit web pages on a windows machine.
When I upload, i get the ^m thing at the end of everyline when viewed with a linux text editor.
I know that uploading with ascii mode will stop this and do the conversion for me. But I use webdrive and edit my page right on the server. It doesn't seem to want to allow ascii mode when doing it this way. But i do not want to go back to the old fashioned, edit on you local machine, then upload, thing.
Can anyone tell me, do the ^M characters at the end of each line, only visible in a linux text editor, really matter at all as far as search engines are concerned? Or are there any other problems this may cause?
