Lintian Reports

E control-file-with-CRLF-EOLs

All reports of control-file-with-CRLF-EOLs for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The given control file uses CRLF as line terminator instead of the traditional UNIX LF terminator. Since some tools were only designed with the UNIX end-of-line terminators in mind, it is possible that they misbehave or lead to unexpected results.

Running the following command against the given file removes any CR character in the file:

sed -i 's/\r//g' path/to/file

Severity: important, Certainty: possible

Check: cruft, Type: source

Emitted (non-overridden): 1, overridden: 0, total: 1

The package names link to the relevant maintainer page and the corresponding report for the source package. The links go to the full maintainer report page, which includes info and experimental tags and overridden tags, rather than the default page that shows only errors and warnings.
