The suite of utilities known as DosUnix provide a selection of features allowing manipulation of text files in a mixed DOS/Windows and Unix environment.

The three utilities are:

  • dosunix, which creates a copy of a DOS text file in Unix text format;
  • unixdos, which creates a copy of a Unix text file in DOS text format;
  • chktxt, which inspects a given text file to determine whether it is in DOS text format or Unix text format.

Current version

Get the source code: dosunix-1.0.14.tar.gz
and its PGP signature: dosunix-1.0.14.tar.gz.sig

If you use Debian, you can install the debs directly:

The i386 version installs cleanly into Woody, Sarge, Etch etc. since the only dependency is libc6; the amd64 package has only been tested on Sarge.

Previous version

Previous version still available, in particular as binaries for RedHat 6.x- and 7.x-based systems. Get the source code: dosunix-1.0.13.tar.gz
and its PGP signature: dosunix-1.0.13.tar.gz.sig

Pre-built binaries (RPMs):

There are other utilities "out there" that do a similar job to dosunix and unixdos, but these particular utilties were created to make it simple in an end-user environment to copy files from e.g. a DOS/Windows systems to a Unix system. These utilities do the copy and change the file format simultaneously, using easy-to-understand commands.
