 ^M and ^Z don't appear on the screen, (usually) this is a notation
that designates the Carrige Return and IBM end of file characters.
As these are 'non-printing' characters and to make them visible in messages
we type 'carat' ^ and then the letter.  IF you look at the file with a HEX
editor you will see that they ARE there, maybe displayed as 0A  and 0D.
you may compare the before and after files.
