unix2dos - convert text file from ISO format to DOS format
unix2dos [ -ascii ] [ -iso ] [ -7 ] originalfile convertedfile
unix2dos converts ISO standard characters to the corresponding charac-
ters in the DOS extended character set.
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.
-ascii Adds carriage returns and converts end of file characters in
SunOS format text files to conform to DOS requirements.
-iso This is the default. Converts ISO standard characters to the
corresponding character in the DOS extended character set.
-7 Convert 8 bit SunOS characters to 7 bit DOS characters.
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 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 tmpfile to filename.
Translated tmpfile 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.
