Hi
I have MANIFEST.MF files in unix which didnt get converted to unix format and thus have ( ^M) charater. Now finding all the files with this character is an issue.

1. Need script to find ^M character in all the files in the dir and sub dir (if possible)

2. MOST IMPORTANT: Is there any way to search the jar files without unjaring them to find the ^M in the files where the end of line is supposed to be.  Because I am right now unjarring and re-jaring files which you can agree, is very inconvenient:)

Please reply for both questions (pls refer to each question and 1 or 2) as soon as possible.
Thank you

you can do:
#under the current dir:
find . -type f  -exec grep -l "^M" {} \; > filelist

where: ^M you need to type in: Ctrl v Ctrl M in your keyboard.
           all the filename stored in filelist.

Or for the whole system:
find / -type f  -exec grep -l "^M" {} \; > filelist

A blanket way of ensuring all your jarfiles have Unix end of line characters is to do

find / -name "*.jar" -exec dos2unix {} \;

1. Need script to find ^M character in all the files in the dir and sub dir (if possible)

find . -type f  -exec grep -l "^M\$" {} \; > /tmp/flist

#Create the ^M as suggested by ahoffman above.
#The additional \$ it to instruct grep to only identify ^M at the end of a line.
#if there are none text files is your search path they may contain the character code for ^M but it is a genuine value not a DOS end-of-line.

2. MOST IMPORTANT: Is there any way to search the jar files without unjaring them to find the ^M in the files where the end of line is supposed to be.  Because I am right now unjarring and re-jaring files which you can agree, is very inconvenient:

The same possibily occurs here is you simply check a complete .jar file for any ^M - is it a real value in a non-text file or NOT?

I think you have to have 2 stages here.

A.  use the same command as above to identify all files including .jar's.

B.  for each .jar file identified then unjar into a temp dir and run the command against that temp dir.
