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 characters.

     This command can be invoked from either DOS or  SunOS.  How-
     ever,  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 requirements.

     -iso  This is the default. It converts characters in the DOS
           extended character set to the corresponding  ISO stan-
           dard characters.

     -7    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. Other-
     wise, the default is US. The user may override the code page
     with one of the following options:

     -437  Use US code page

     -850  Use multilingual code page

     -860  Use Portuguese code page

     -863  Use French Canadian code page

     -865  Use Danish code page


     The following operands are required:

           The original file in DOS format  that  is  being  con-
           verted 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 com-
           mand, ls -l (see ls(1)).

     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 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  con-
           verting  your  file.   Your  converted  file is stored
           under the name indicated on the second  line  of  this
