SYNOPSIS

fromdos < dosfile.txt > unixfile.txt  

DESCRIPTION

fromdos takes a DOS text file as stdin and sends a UNIX text file to stdout. DOS text file format separates lines of text by two characters: CR followed by LF (hex 0d 0a). UNIX text file format separates lines of text with a single LF character (hex 0a). This program changes the CR LF groups found in the input stream to LF in the output stream.
