Works, thanks:

    $ printf 'hello world\r\n' | grep . | od -tcx1
    0000000   h   e   l   l   o       w   o   r   l   d  \r  \n
             68  65  6c  6c  6f  20  77  6f  72  6c  64  0d  0a

This is certainly a good way to do it, but for more portable solution use tr:

    $ printf 'hello world\r\n' | tr -d '\r' | od -tcx1
    0000000   h   e   l   l   o       w   o   r   l   d  \n
             68  65  6c  6c  6f  20  77  6f  72  6c  64  0a
