unix2dos - convert text file from ISO format to DOS format
unix2dos [-ascii] [-iso] [-7]
[-437 | -850 | -860 | -863 | -865] originalfile convertedfile
The unix2dos utility converts ISO standard
characters to the corresponding characters in the DOS extended
This command may 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,
unix2dos will rewrite the original file after converting it.
The following options are supported:
Adds carriage returns and converts end of file characters
in SunOS format text files to conform to DOS requirements.
This is the default. Converts ISO standard
characters to the corresponding character in the DOS extended character
Converts 8 bit SunOS characters to 7 bit DOS
On non-i386 systems, unix2dos 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 ISO format that is being
converted to DOS format.
The new file in DOS format that has been converted
from the original ISO file format.
File filename not found, or no read
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 tmpfile name = filename.
Could not rename tmpfile 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.
