Thanks Nuno, I thought dos2unix and dtox were exactly what I was looking
for, I was wrong. 'fromdos' is what I was looking for.  Thanks for telling
me about it. 'fromdos' works better for me than the dos2unix commands.
'fromdos' actually removed the invalid characters in the file and now the
file runs correctly. dos2unix didn't remove the characters.

Thank again
