zip command

Hi All,

I have the following requirement.
Source file Products_Extract.dat contains <CTRL M > characters and hence is in DOS format.

I zip this file using zip command in UNIX BOX as follows:
find . -name Products_Extract.dat|zip -@

Next I ftp (in Binary MODE) this output zip ( to Windows (lets say C:\Temp)

Now from Windows (C:\Temp), when I try to do an unzip using Winzip operation , then I dont file the CTRL M characters existing in the extracted file. My requirement is that CTRL M characters should be available after unzip in Windows

CAn you please advice on this
