dos2unix Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies dos2unix-7.4.2.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

HISTORY

        This is an update of Benjamin Lin's implementations of dos2unix and
        unix2dos.  Benjamin Lin's implementations of dos2unix and unix2dos were
        distributed via SunSITE.unc.edu (later MetaLab.unc.edu, now ibiblio)
        and became part of several Linux distributions such as RedHat, Suse,
        Gentoo, and others. This update includes all RedHat patches and fixes
        several other problems. Internationalization has been added and ports
        to DOS, Windows, Cygwin and OS/2 Warp have been made.

        These implementations of dos2unix and unix2dos have been modelled after
        dos2unix/unix2dos under SunOS/Solaris. The first versions were made by
        John Birchfield in 1989, and in 1995 rewritten from scratch by Benjamin
        Lin. Mac to Unix conversion was added by Bernd Johannes Wuebben in
        1998, Unix to Mac conversion by Erwin Waterlander in 2010.

        In 2010 the two separate dos2unix and unix2dos packages have been
        bundled into a single dos2unix package (version 5.0). Support for
        Unicode UTF-16 was added in 2012 (version 6.0). Version 7.0, in 2014,
        was a major code cleanup and added a test suite. 


        Features

        * Native language support.
        * Automatically skips binary and non-regular files.
        * In-place, paired, or stdio mode conversion.
        * Keep original file dates option.
        * 7-bit and iso conversion modes like SunOS dos2unix.
        * Conversion of Unicode UTF-16 files.
        * Handles Unicode Byte Order Mark (BOM).
        * Display file information.
        * Secure.
