Subject: btparse doesn't like windows format .bibs

Since btparse was written for UNIX quite some time ago, it doesn't really like windows file format bibliographies. It keeps Ctrl-M characters in the strings it postprocesses. Here is a very simply patch which passes the btparse compile tests, to address this. It simply removes Ctrl-M characters from strings as part of post- processing. It does this regardless of the whitespace collapsing processing.

Hello Thanks for the patch. Applied. Just do not expect a new release in the next few days. I am in the process of incorporating btparse library in the Perl module for easy maintenance :) Cheers Alberto

That's great, thanks. Let me know if you can when it's done and I can test. I'm working on a project (Biber for biblatex) which needs this module and so it's really important to us! PK -- Dr Philip Kime
