Dos2Unix is filter used to convert plain texts from DOS (CR/LF) format to UNIX format (CR) and vice versa.


First, you need some UNIX system which have some basic C development tools alredy installed.

Note: If you're using some package management tool on your system you should have also installed so called 'development' package of popt library (popt-dev or popt-devel, etc.) so required header files are also installed.

After you sucessfuly downloaded and unpacked source tarball, do the following in source directory:

make install

This will build and install 'dos2unix' into default location, which is /usr/local/bin .

If you want to use another prefix than /usr/local use for example:

./configure --prefix=/usr

This will install 'dos2unix' into /usr/bin .

Popt library is required to process command line arguments.
