Those are carriage return characters (decimal value 13).  If you were searching 
for an up arrow (shift 6) followed by an M emacs will not match that with a 
carriage return.
Try this to match them:  C-Q C-M
This will insert a carriage return character into the search string.

I have seen much discussion on removing these from a buffer.  I am certain that 
there are many packages available to do this.  Since I wrote my own function 
before I discovered emacs packages I have not paid much attention to them.  You 
might want to take a look at the packages list at  Or you could look in the archives of this 
list.  (My function is not quite ready for primetime).

I want to get some files from noEmacs-windows-editors into Linux GNU
Emacs Editor.

But you cannot work because of "strange" return-commands from windows
in these files (->  ^M ).

How it's possible to remove/replace these commands with Emacs or any
other tools in Unix-Systems ?
(with the Emacs-replace-function you cannot find ^M)

Thanks for Help,
