Syntax:

textto [-c|l|r] [-qz] file...

Options:

-q

Description:

The textto utility lets you convert text files to QNX 2, QNX 4/UNIX, or DOS format. You can use the -z option to strip ^Z codes from DOS-based files. Some DOS programs use this character as an end-of-file indicator.

Examples:

Change all QNX 2 record separators in prog.c to QNX 4 line feeds:

textto -l prog.c

Change all QNX 4 line feeds in all of the .h files in the current directory to QNX 2 record separators:

textto -r *.h

Change all QNX 4 line feeds in all of the .txt files in the current directory to DOS CR/LFs:

textto -c *.txt
