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 character set.
This command may 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,
unix2dos will rewrite the original file after converting it.
The following options are supported:
Adds carriage returns and converts end of file charac-
ters in SunOS format text files to conform to DOS
-iso This is the default. Converts ISO standard characters
to the corresponding character in the DOS extended
-7 Converts 8 bit SunOS characters to 7 bit DOS charac-
On non-i386 systems, unix2dos 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 ISO format that is being con-
verted 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 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 tmpfile name = filename.
Could not rename tmpfile 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 message.
