Why use od when I can use Python ;)  (see below)

I've just tested a checkout of our repository on Mac OS X,
and found a single Python file with Windows newlines (CRLF)
but I'm pretty sure that happened before we moved to git.



#Quick script to check for potential new line issues
#or tab indentation instead of spaces
import os

def check(filename):
    #load in binary mode as I want to see any \r
    handle = open(filename, "rb")
    for line in handle:
        if "\t" in line or "\r" in line:
            print filename, repr(line)

for dirpath, dirnames, filenames in os.walk("."):
    for f in filenames:
        if f.endswith(".py"):
print "Done"
