 NAME
      dos2ux, ux2dos - convert ASCII file format

 SYNOPSIS
      dos2ux file...

      ux2dos file...

 DESCRIPTION
      dos2ux and ux2dos read each specified file in sequence and write it to
      standard output, converting to HP-UX format or to DOS format,
      respectively.  Each file can be either DOS format or HP-UX format for
      either command.

      A DOS file name is recognized by the presence of an embedded colon (:)
      delimiter; see dosif(4) for DOS file naming conventions.

      If no input file is given or if the argument - is encountered, dos2ux
      and ux2dos read from standard input.  Standard input can be combined
      with other files.

 EXAMPLES
      Print file myfile on the display:

	   dos2ux myfile

      Convert file1 and file2 to DOS format then concatenate them together,
      placing them in file3.

	   ux2dos file1 file2 >&gt&gt> file3

 RETURN VALUE
      dos2ux and ux2dos return 0 if successful or 2 if the command failed.
      The only possible failure is the inability to open a specified file,
      in which case the commands print a warning.

 WARNINGS
      Command formats resembling:

	   dos2ux file1 file2 >&gt&gt> file1

      overwrite the data in file1 before the concatenation begins, causing a
      loss of the contents of file1.  Therefore, be careful when using shell
      special characters.
