i made a shell script to automatically tar files from a given filelist (.txt), the script is below.
My problem is that there is an issue with the tar command, which seems not to understand the name of the file i want to put in the archive.
For a given filename, i.e : bijou65_t.jpg, i get these errors...


tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
tar: bijou65_t.jpg\r: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Can anyone tell me what's wrong ??

cd $basedir
for file in $(cat $csvdir/ftpskydog.csv); do
curfile=`find . | grep  $file`
curfile=`echo "$file" | sed 's://:/:'`
echo $curfile
tar -cvfA /Users/terencepires/Documents/Skydog/skydogimg.tar $file > $csvdir/tar.log
