   24 HISTORY
   25 
   26         This is an update of Benjamin Lin's implementations of dos2unix and
   27         unix2dos.  Benjamin Lin's implementations of dos2unix and unix2dos were
   28         distributed via SunSITE.unc.edu (later MetaLab.unc.edu, now ibiblio)
   29         and became part of several Linux distributions such as RedHat, Suse,
   30         Gentoo, and others. This update includes all RedHat patches and fixes
   31         several other problems. Internationalization has been added and ports
   32         to DOS, Windows, Cygwin and OS/2 Warp have been made.
   33 
   34         These implementations of dos2unix and unix2dos have been modelled after
   35         dos2unix/unix2dos under SunOS/Solaris. The first versions were made by
   36         John Birchfield in 1989, and in 1995 rewritten from scratch by Benjamin
   37         Lin. Mac to Unix conversion was added by Bernd Johannes Wuebben in
   38         1998, Unix to Mac conversion by Erwin Waterlander in 2010.
   39 
   40         In 2010 the two separate dos2unix and unix2dos packages have been
   41         bundled into a single dos2unix package (version 5.0). Support for
   42         Unicode UTF-16 was added in 2012 (version 6.0). Version 7.0, in 2014,
   43         was a major code cleanup and added a test suite. 
   44 
   45 
   46         Features
