There's a simple answer to that waste of disk space (two
bytes per line break!):
recode cp437..iso8859 <filename>
It's also handy for users who have german umlauts in DOS
text files and need to recode them to iso8859-1. (It's also
a nice tool if the conversion is used in opposite order:
This way, UNIX files can be converted to be sent directly
to dotmatrix printers that expect DOS text streams.)
The recode utility can be found in converters/recode port.
