Was the ctrl-L what he said is the problem?

I don't know what email reader you are using,
but I saw this:

there's a strange character between the ctrl-L and the "at file".
I thought that was what he was having problems with.

od -x

0000120 7463 7265 0a0a 0a0c ef0a bfbb 7461 6620

Sorry it's byte swapped, but the 0x0C is the ctrl-L
and the strange character is 0xEF.  How did that
get there?

You could imagine a compiler bug that only happens
on strange computers when there is a strange
character in a strange place in the input buffer.
