Hi ALl
Thanks for all the replies.
Eventually i did Methyl suggestion,
dd if=inputfile.txt of=outputfile.txt ibs=131072 cbs=47 conv=unblock
and it added delimiter character "/015" in the end of every record .
so the length of every record now is 48 include the "/015" character.
exactly what i wanted.
i did this :cat outputfile.txt | tr '\n' '\r' > outputfile2.txt
but i didn't see any changes.
thank you very much to all of you.
Best regards.

Try this:

Code:
tr -d '\r' < dosfile > unixfile
