NAME

       dos2unix - DOS/MAC to UNIX text file format converter



SYNOPSYS

       dos2unix  [options] [-c convmode] [-o file ...] [-n infile outfile ...]

       Options:

       [-hkqV] [--help] [--keepdate] [--quiet] [--version]



DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents dos2unix, the program  that  converts  plain
       text files in DOS/MAC format to UNIX format.

       The following options are available:

       -h --help
              Print online help.


       -k --keepdate
              Keep the date stamp of output file same as input file.


       -q --quiet
              Quiet mode. Suppress all warning and messages.


       -V --version
              Prints version information.


       -c --convmode convmode
              Sets  conversion  mode.  Where  convmode is one of: ASCII, 7bit,
              ISO, Mac with ASCII being the default.  Simulates dos2unix under
              SunOS.




       -o --oldfile file ...
              Old file mode. Convert the file and write output to it. The pro-

       Get input from stdin and write output to stdout.

              dos2unix


       Convert and replace a.txt. Convert and replace b.txt.

              dos2unix a.txt b.txt

              dos2unix -o a.txt b.txt


       Convert and replace a.txt in ASCII conversion mode.

              dos2unix a.txt -c iso b.txt


       Convert and replace b.txt in ISO conversion mode.

              dos2unix -c ascii a.txt -c iso b.txt


       Convert c.txt from Mac to Unix ascii format.


              dos2unix -c mac c.txt b.txt


       Convert and replace a.txt while keeping original date stamp.

              dos2unix -k a.txt

              dos2unix -k -o a.txt


       Convert a.txt and write to e.txt.

              dos2unix -n a.txt e.txt


       Convert a.txt and write to e.txt, keep date  stamp  of  e.txt  same  as
       a.txt.

              dos2unix -k -n a.txt e.txt


       Convert and replace a.txt. Convert b.txt and write to e.txt.

              dos2unix a.txt -n b.txt e.txt

              dos2unix -o a.txt -n b.txt e.txt


       Convert  c.txt  and write to e.txt. Convert and replace a.txt.  Convert
       and replace b.txt. Convert d.txt and write to f.txt.
