The ^M characters aren't added by svn, they're added by your text editor. Cross-platform editors such as vi, gvim, emacs, and xemacs won't do that.
You can convert the file formats with "dos2unix" and "unix2dos"
I never would have guessed, but in the other replies so far, they say you can also have svn (or tortoise) automatically do the unix2dos or dos2unix for you. Pretty cool feature.

I have a subversion working copy in unix. I have configured samba on my unix box so that I can access the working copy from windows.
I have modified files in windows and commit them using TortoiseSVN on windows.
When I check / open the files in unix, I see that there are control-M characters in each file that I committed from windows.
Is there any configuration / settings available in subversion or Tortoise SVN which will avoid adding control characters when files modified and committed from windows.
Also, I don't see the TortoiseSVN Icons on the samba shared working copy in windows.
I appreciate your help
Thanks & Regards,
