^M characters are embedded at the end of every record.

Sorry Nicolas, ^M does not stand for Microsoft.  

Any machine (PET, Apple, etc) that uses the ASCII <CR><LF> sequence as a
end-of-line terminator will exhibit the same behavior if FTP'ed binary mode
to a Unix type box.

file in both ASCII and BINARY modes.  Both modes don't help.  However, if I
send the plain text file via FTP in ASCII mode, the file does not contain
and control characters.  Is there a way to decrypt the file into an output
file without ^M character or is there a way to encrypt the file without ^M?

This is not a GnuPG issue. All files created on notepad or some
microsoft editor are full of ^M. Microsoft it says. The best you could
do it not use windows but if you're addicted to this thing you could
always use an other editor.
