UNIX2DOS(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		   UNIX2DOS(1)

NAME
     unix2dos -- convert ASCII files from UNIX's LF to DOS's CR/LF

SYNOPSIS
     unix2dos [-p] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
     When called without parameters, the unix2dos utility reads	from the stan-
     dard input, transforming LF characters into CR/LF pairs and writing them
     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 unix2dos utility is the same program as
     the dos2unix(1) utility. It simply	checks its name	to see what operation
     is	expected.  If you change the name of the binary, unix2dos will default
     to	converting files from UNIX to DOS.

RETURN VALUES
     The unix2dos 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
     dos2unix(1)

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