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
           character set.

     -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.
