The seesat5 package (a satellite tracking program) provides a little
program called "cr" that will convert text files from DOS style carriage
returns to Unix ones and back. Seesat5 needs the facility to incorporate
DOS generated element files on the Linux file system without the extra ^M
which causes problems for seesat5.
