I've attached a perl script callable from commitinfo
that rejects commits of certain file types if any line
in the file ends in ctrl-M.

This script contains an explicit list of end of filename
matching criteria to ascertain whether a file is an
ASCII file.  (e.g. .java$, .txt$, .html$, etc.) and should
be checked for lines ending with ctrl-M.  (You
certainly would *not* want to run this check on
a binary file.)

Commented out from the script is an alternative
"automatic" way to determine whether the file
is ASCII using the Unix file command.  I haven't
thoroughly tested it, but I've found that if it returns
a match of ":.*text" or ":.*script", it is likely an
ASCII file.

Hope this helps,
David Martin
