Sprinkle enough "s/ \015//;" lines in f5rancid after the "while
(<INPUT>) {" and it works for me now when run from cron  (see attached

I do not know perl; I'd appreciate it if someone could explain why
"tr/ \015//d;" doesn't get rid of the embedded [space][cr] but "s/
\015//;" does.

It would also be nice if someone could figure out how to change the F5
line width to 160 chars from the default 80.  I think that'd be better
than removing any embedded [space][cr]
