       dos2unix - convert text file from DOS format to ISO format

       dos2unix [-ascii] [-iso] [-7]
	    [-437 | -850 | -860 | -863 | -865] originalfile convertedfile

       The  dos2unix  utility converts characters in the DOS extended character set to the corre-
       sponding ISO standard characters.

       This command can be invoked from either DOS or SunOS. However, the filenames must  conform
       to the conventions of the environment in which the command is invoked.

       If the original file and the converted file are the same,  dos2unix will rewrite the orig-
       inal file after converting it.

       The following options are supported:

       -ascii	 Removes extra carriage returns and converts end of file characters in DOS format
		 text files to conform to SunOS requirements.

       -iso	 This is the default. It converts characters in the DOS extended character set to
		 the corresponding  ISO standard characters.

       -7	 Converts 8 bit DOS graphics characters to 7 bit space characters so  that  SunOS
		 can read the file.

       On  non-i386 systems, dos2unix will attempt to obtain the keyboard type to determine which
       code page to use. Otherwise, the default is US. The user may override the code  page  with
       one of the following options:

       -437    Use US code page

       -850    Use multilingual code page

       -860    Use Portuguese code page

       -863    Use French Canadian code page

       -865    Use Danish code page

       The following operands are required:

       originalfile	 The original file in DOS format that is being converted to ISO format.

       convertedfile	 The new file in ISO format that has been converted from the original DOS
			 file format.

       File filename not found, or no read permission

	   The input file you specified does not exist, or you do not have read permission. Check
	   with the SunOS command, ls -l (see ls(1)).

       Bad output filename filename, or no write permission

	   The	output	file you specified is either invalid, or you do not have write permission
	   for that file or the directory that	contains  it.	Check  also  that  the	drive  or
	   diskette  is not write-protected.

       Error while writing to temporary file

	   An  error  occurred	while converting your file, possibly because  there is not enough
	   space on the current drive. Check the amount of space on the current drive  using  the
	   DIR	command. Also be certain that the default diskette or drive is write-enabled (not
	   write-protected). Notice that when  this  error  occurs,  the  original  file  remains

       Translated temporary file name = filename.
       Could not rename temporary file to filename.

	   The	program  could not perform the final step in converting your file. Your converted
	   file is stored under the name indicated on the second line of this message.
