If you're sure you just want to delete the 1st three bytes of a file:

Code:
dd ibs=1 skip=3 if=filename of=filename.new

not all the files are with the same hidden structure and some have others in different places but i guess it should work if I use perl to remove the BOMs

tried deleting the first 3 character and it seems to help the process ... thanx
