       unix2dos - convert text file from ISO format to DOS format

       unix2dos [-ascii] [-iso] [-7]
	    [-437 | -850 | -860 | -863 | -865] originalfile convertedfile

       The  unix2dos  utility converts ISO standard characters to the corresponding characters in
       the DOS extended character set.

       This command may 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,  unix2dos will rewrite the orig-
       inal file after converting it.

       The following options are supported:

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

       -iso	 This is the default. Converts ISO standard characters to the corresponding char-
		 acter in the DOS extended character set.

       -7	 Converts 8 bit SunOS characters to 7 bit DOS characters.

       On non-i386 systems, unix2dos 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 ISO format that is being converted to DOS format.

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

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       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 tmpfile name = filename.
       Could not rename tmpfile 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.
