Hi all,

Check it:

# test1.rb - created via Eclipse on Windows, using UTF8 encoding
#!/usr/bin/ruby

# test2.rb - created via vi on Linux
#!/usr/bin/ruby

>./test1.rb
>: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

>./test2.rb
>

Hey! WTF?

>od test1.rb
0000000 020443 072457 071163 061057 067151 071057 061165 006571
0000020 000012
0000021

>od test2.rb
0000000 020443 072457 071163 061057 067151 071057 061165 005171
0000020

Normally I can see newlines as ^M characters with vi, but I don't see
them, and attempting to replace them doesn't work.

According to my ASCII chart, 12 is a newline.  Ok, I wrote test1.rb on
Windows.  But where the heck is that 21 (device control 1?) coming from?
Is it the UTF8 encoding?  And how do I get rid of it?  And why is it
making Ruby choke?

Thanks,

Dan
