NAME

       unix2dos - UNIX to DOS text file format converter



SYNOPSYS

       unix2dos  [options] [-c convmode] [-o file ...] [-n infile outfile ...]

       Options:

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



DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents unix2dos, the  program  that  converts  text
       files in UNIX format to DOS format.



OPTIONS

       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. Simulates unix2dos under SunOS.


       -o --oldfile file ...
              Old file mode. Convert the file and write output to it. The pro-
              gram default to run in this mode. Wildcard names may be used.


       -n --newfile infile outfile ...
              New file mode. Convert the infile and write output  to  outfile.

EXAMPLES

       Get input from stdin and write output to stdout.

              unix2dos


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

              unix2dos a.txt b.txt

              unix2dos -o a.txt b.txt


       Convert and replace  a.txt  in  ASCII  conversion  mode.   Convert  and
       replace b.txt in ISO conversion mode.

              unix2dos a.txt -c iso b.txt

              unix2dos -c ascii a.txt -c iso b.txt


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

              unix2dos -k a.txt

              unix2dos -k -o a.txt


       Convert a.txt and write to e.txt.

              unix2dos -n a.txt e.txt


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

              unix2dos -k -n a.txt e.txt


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

              unix2dos a.txt -n b.txt e.txt

              unix2dos -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.

              unix2dos -n c.txt e.txt -o a.txt b.txt -n d.txt f.txt
