You mean converting a UNIX text file to a DOS text file? Install the sysutils package. It includes a utility called "fromdos" (alternately "unix2dos") which does this. Just do "fromdos <filename>". Alternately, you could look at the recode package, which does a lot of different conversions, but isn't quite as simple to use if you just want to do UNIX -> DOS conversion. -- Hubert Chan <email@example.com> - http://www.uhoreg.ca/ PGP/GnuPG key: 1024D/124B61FA Fingerprint: 96C5 012F 5F74 A5F7 1FF7 5291 AF29 C719 124B 61FA Key available at wwwkeys.pgp.net.
