dos2unix - convert text file from DOS format to ISO format
dos2unix [ -ascii ] [ -iso ] [ -7 ] originalfile convertedfile
dos2unix converts characters in the DOS extended character set to the
corresponding ISO standard characters.
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.
-ascii Removes extra carriage returns and converts end of file charac-
ters in DOS format text files to conform to SunOS requirements.
-iso This is the default. It converts characters in the DOS extended
character set to the corresponding ISO standard characters.
-7 Convert 8 bit DOS graphics characters to 7 bit space characters
so that SunOS can read the file.
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 ls -l command).
Bad output filename filename, or no write permission
The output file you specified is either invalid, or you do not
have write permission for that file or the directory that con-
tains it. Check also that the drive or diskette is not write-
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). Note that when this error
occurs, the original file remains intact.
Could not rename temporary file to filename.
Translated temporary file name = 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.
