Do you have any knowledge of how one would get a carriage return on a line of text or text file. I know how to send the file to the command line, which I'm doing using hyperterminal but don’t know how to effect the CR? Thanks, zek

A Control-M is the carriage return and the Control-J is the newline. You enter these keys by holding down the Control (Ctrl) key and pressing the appropriate letter at the same time.

In fact using the Control key will allow the entry of most of the characters in the range 0x00 to 0x1F.

To Papabravo, works but now.....

I believe I need to put a pause in the text after the Ctrl + M or do something with hyperterminal to cause a delay between command lines. TIA Zek.

That depends on whether it's UNIX or Windows.

UNIX is 13 (decimal) and windows is 10, 13 (decimal).
