The following statement works fine when entered from a Unix command
sed 's/^L//' oldfile >newfile (where the ^L was composed with a Ctrl V
and Ctrl L key sequence)
However, when I copy this into a script (#!/bin/sh) it does not work
(i.e. it does not remove all the ^L in the file)
I have also tried sed 's/\cL//' and sed 's/\014//' but they don't work
from the command line or in the script.
Thanks for helping.
