With a little dig on my side , I have found the issue as to why the
script is skipping that file. The file is "ISO-8859 text, with CRLF
The file should be ASCII and I changed using dos2unix and CRLF line
terminators is eliminated but still I am not reading it. How can I
read those files with "ISO-8859 text"?
