We have 2 Linux machines. Recently observed that when ftping txt files over in ASCII mode from other UNIX machines to these machines, the file size of the txt files was increasing. Did a octal dump of the txt files after the ftp and noticed that each line had "\r\n" instead of the original "\n". This additional character must be the reason for the increase in file size.
My question is this something native to Linux or is there something that we are missing in the FTP setup on these linux machines
If not, is the only alternative to have scripts to remove the "\r" from the file to restore the file to the original size.
