SYNOPSIS

dos2unix [-p] []

DESCRIPTION

When called without parameters, the dos2unix utility reads from the standard input, transforming CR/LF pairs into an LF character and writing it to the standard output. If there’s at least one filename specified, the file operands are processed in command line order, reading from the files specified and overwriting them with the converted version.

If the [-p] option is given, both the access and modification time of the original file are preserved.

It’s important to note that the dos2unix utility is the same program as the unix2dos(1) utility. It simply checks its name to see what operation is expected. If you change the name of the binary, dos2unix will default to converting files from UNIX to DOS.

RETURN VALUES

The dos2unix utility exits 0 on success, and 1 if there was an error processing any of the files. Note however that execution of the program does not stop if one of the files has a problem. The offending file is simply skipped and processing of the remaining files continues.

All complains, or even better, suggestions should be addressed to the author Oscar Bonilla <obonilla@galileo.edu>
