Parsing a UNIX txt to separate files

I have a requirement to parse a dataflex .txt file and break it into separate files within the Windows server env. Is there any special characters I should pay particular attention on the unix side? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

end of line, but many unix systems have a dos2unix conversion tool to handle this. Write your script and see what happens, these types of issues are easy to resolve.

Or if you transfer the file using ftp, and specify ascii mode, line feeds will be converted to crlf automatically.
