Dos2unix, Convert plain text DOS files to Unix format.Updated by Editors on Saturday, January 26, 2013.
Convert plain text files in DOS or Mac format to Unix format and vice versa.
In DOS/Windows text files a line break, also known as newline, is a combination of two characters: a Carriage Return (CR) followed by a Line Feed (LF). In Unix text files a line break is a single character: the Line Feed (LF). In Mac text files, prior to Mac OS X, a line break was single Carriage Return (CR) character. Nowadays Mac OS uses Unix style (LF) line breaks.
