Not as far as I know. I've written myself a utility called udl which
converts text between the formats used on Unix, Apple and MS/DOS. It does
so for several files, even recursively. So far, it has been used on Apple
IIgs, SunOS, Solaris, HP/UX and SCO/Unix. The binary has not been released
for MS/DOS because of problems I have with DJGPP's opendir/readdir
functions (they don't act like they should in the presence of chdir, alas),
so recursion works but is awkward to use.

If you want me to, I'll mail you a copy of the binary.


I don't know what it is he's doing, it must be art
