- d2u [-bBuUlLfF] [[<]input_file] [[>]output_file]
Lines in DOS text files are terminated by a carriage-return/line-feed pair, while lines in UNIX text files are terminated by a single line feed. The d2u command lets you convert text files from DOS format to UNIX format.
The input_file and output_file arguments may optionally have a redirection symbol in front of them. The d2u command reads from standard input and writes to standard output, if there are no file arguments specified. The input_file specification is the file that is to be converted. The output_file specification is the name of the file that is to receive the converted file.
The size of the output_file can be smaller than the input_file, since each two-character sequence (<CR><LF>) of the input file is replaced by 1 character (<LF>) in the output file.
