DOS2UNIX(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		   DOS2UNIX(1)

NAME
     dos2unix -- convert ASCII files from DOS's	CR/LF to UNIX's	LF

SYNOPSIS
     dos2unix [-p] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
     When called without parameters, the dos2unix utility reads	from the stan-
     dard 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 pro-
     cessing 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.

SEE ALSO
     unix2dos(1)

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