unix txt files in M$: /var/adm/messages

hi
I have a script that mails me when certain event are logged in /var/adm/messages. When the mail reaches me there are no line breaks (its just one really long line) so I tried piping the output of the script to a text file which I run `unix2dos` on then mail myself that, but that didn't work.

also tried these in addition to unix2do to no avail

Code:
perl -p -e 's/\n/\r\n/' < unixfile.txt > winfile.txt
 nawk 'sub("$", "\r")' unixfile.txt > winfile.txt

any ideas?
Thank you

Did you check your outlook settings, when you will open your mail, on the top, does it says
"Extra line breaks have been removed"
if yes then right click and restore the line breaks.

/var/adm/messages vs /var/log/messages

The /var/adm/messages in Solaris seem to log more system messages/errors compared to /var/log/messages in Linux. I checked the log level in Linux and they seem OK. Is there any other log file that contains the messages or is it just that Linux doesn't log great many things? (2 Replies)
