      Description

      When starting Solr built from the master branch on Windows, this is what you see:

      C:\Users\elyograg\git\lucene-solr\solr>bin\solr start
      
      C:\Users\elyograg\git\lucene-solr\solr>@REM
      '@REM' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
      operable program or batch file.
      

      The three extra characters, found at the very beginning of the solr.cmd script, are a Unicode BOM, and are invisible to vim, notepad, and notepad++.

      The problem does not exist in 6.1.0, but IS present in branch_6x and master.

      Using grep to find this character in the entire codebase, I found one other relevant file with a BOM. All others were binary (images, jars, git pack files, etc):

      ./solr/webapp/web/js/lib/jquery.blockUI.js
