dos2unix - convert text file from DOS format to ISO format
dos2unix [-ascii] [-iso] [-7]
[-437 | -850 | -860 | -863 | -865] originalfile convertedfile
The dos2unix utility converts characters in the DOS
extended character set to the corresponding ISO standard
This command can be invoked from either DOS or SunOS.
However, the filenames must conform to the conventions of the environment in
which the command is invoked.
If the original file and the converted file are the same,
dos2unix will rewrite the original file after converting it.
The following options are supported:
Removes extra carriage returns and converts end of file
characters in DOS format text files to conform to SunOS
This is the default. It converts characters in the
DOS extended character set to the corresponding ISO standard
Converts 8 bit DOS graphics characters to 7 bit
space characters so that SunOS can read the file.
On non-i386 systems, dos2unix will attempt to obtain the
keyboard type to determine which code page to use. Otherwise, the default is
US. The user may override the code page with one of the following
Use US code page
Use multilingual code page
Use Portuguese code page
Use French Canadian code page
Use Danish code page
The following operands are required:
The original file in DOS format that is being
converted to ISO format.
The new file in ISO format that has been converted
from the original DOS file format.
File filename not found, or no read permission
The input file you specified does not exist, or you do
not have read permission. Check with the SunOS command, ls -l
Bad output filename filename, or no write
The output file you specified is either invalid, or you
do not have write permission for that file or the directory that contains it.
Check also that the drive or diskette is not write-protected.
Error while writing to temporary file
An error occurred while converting your file, possibly
because there is not enough space on the current drive. Check the amount of
space on the current drive using the DIR command. Also be certain that
the default diskette or drive is write-enabled (not write-protected). Notice
that when this error occurs, the original file remains intact.
Translated temporary file name = filename.
Could not rename temporary file to filename.
The program could not perform the final step in
converting your file. Your converted file is stored under the name indicated
on the second line of this message.
