Files edited on windows - dos2unix
When editing or creating files on a windows based system, the formatting is different to that of a file created and edited on a Linux system. This can cause errors, say for instance when you submit a jobscript (bsub) file on the cluster.
Problems of this nature can usually be observed in any error files which are created, which would specifically reference "/bin/sh^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory" Where the "^m" specifically denotes a problem with the line ending/formatting.
This is easily resolved by utilising the dos2unix program which is available on grace. Please see the usage example below, where I convert a jobscript called "edited_windows.bsub" from windows/dos format to Linux format.
This is easily done by using the following command:
Below is a screen shot of the above command being executed to convert the files "edited_windows.bsub".
Sometimes your process may crash, often a a result of excessive memory demands. A core dump file will be created in your working directory. These files may be very large. They are generally of no use to the user and should be deleted.
