- Subject: cygwin gnu grep thinks text files are binary
I was trying to do a grep against some html files I got through wget in
Cygwin with the repeated message "Binary file xxx.html matches". Since grep
thinks they are binary files I don't get to see any of the lines contained.
Would anyone know why this is happening and how to get around this? The
html files have ^M at the end of each line but I don't think that should
cause this. Looking in the FAQ didn't help and I tried google searches
