NAME

       cr - converts text files between nix EOL and dos EOL

SYNOPSIS

       cr  - | +  <input file> <output file>

DESCRIPTION

       Text  files,  such  as tle files, that come from a dos source usualy have the ^M symbol at
       the end of every line. Cr converts files between the dos newline  format  and  the  normal
       *nix  newline  format by stripping the ^M to convert dos to *nix, using the '-' option, or
       adding ^M to a *nix file to create the proper dos file when the '+' option is used.

       Although this extra character is not often a problem, programs  like  seesat5,  which  are
       data  driven  will  encounter  parsing problems when the extra character is present. It is
       these problems that cr is intended to repair.

   Options
       - | +  One or the other of these options is required. The '-' option is used to remove  ^M
              from  all newlines found in the dos file. The '+' option is used to add ^M to every
              newline found in a *nix file.

       input file
              Fully delineated path to the input file.  As  this  program  is  used  in  the  dos
              environment as well, standard input is not used.

       output file
              Fully  delineated  path  to  the  output  file.  As this program is used in the dos
              environment as well, standart output is not used.

BUGS

       Cr is not an inteligent program. It methodicaly replaces/removes the  offending  character
       when  it  finds  it in the correct context. Newline sequences found in contexts other than
       'newline' will be replaced/removed just like those found in the proper context. Passing  a
       binary file through cr is not advised, for this reason. Send all inqueries to Dale Scheetz
       <dwarf@polaris.net>.
