Well, since you asked so politely...
you can strip those pesky carriage returns from Dan's data.txt file
*and* save the old file in a backup form like this:
perl -i.bak -lpe 's|\r$||' data.txt
Yes, there are some oddities scattered in there. But don't ask about
them in a SAS mailing list! :-)
Still, as has been pointed out, avoiding the problem in the first place
is the best solution!
