Hi, I also have the Control-Z problem. I tried the following code and it works
tr -d '\32' < test1.dat > test2.dat

However, I try to do the following and it doesn't work
tr -d '\{$var}' < test1.dat > test2.dat

I need to assign the octal number to a variable because we want the script to be able to remove other ascii char. Anyone get any ideas?
