Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

E control-file-with-CRLF-EOLs

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: error

Check: cruft
