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.

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.
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.DosUnix is GPL licensed, (C)1997-2005 Dave Ewart, email@example.com
