SYNOPSYS
       unix2dos [options] [-c convmode] [-o file ...] [-n infile outfile ...]

       Options:

       [-hkqV] [--help] [--keepdate] [--quiet] [--version]


DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents unix2dos, the program that converts text

       -h --help
              Print online help.

              Prints version information.


       -c --convmode convmode
              Sets conversion mode. Simulates unix2dos under SunOS.


       -o --oldfile file ...
              Old file mode. Convert the file and write output to it. The
              program default to run in this mode. Wildcard names may be used.

              unix2dos


       Convert and replace a.txt. Convert and replace b.txt.

              unix2dos a.txt b.txt

              unix2dos -o a.txt b.txt


       Convert and replace a.txt in ASCII conversion mode.  Convert and
       replace b.txt in ISO conversion mode.

              unix2dos a.txt -c iso b.txt

              unix2dos -c ascii a.txt -c iso b.txt


       Convert and replace a.txt while keeping original date stamp.

              unix2dos -k a.txt

              unix2dos -k -o a.txt


       Convert a.txt and write to e.txt.

              unix2dos -n a.txt e.txt


       Convert a.txt and write to e.txt, keep date stamp of e.txt same as
       a.txt.

              unix2dos -k -n a.txt e.txt


       Convert and replace a.txt. Convert b.txt and write to e.txt.

              unix2dos a.txt -n b.txt e.txt

              unix2dos -o a.txt -n b.txt e.txt


       Convert c.txt and write to e.txt. Convert and replace a.txt.  Convert
       and replace b.txt. Convert d.txt and write to f.txt.

              unix2dos -n c.txt e.txt -o a.txt b.txt -n d.txt f.txt
