[Wolves] Unix Problem

Thanks David

The version of AIX Unix (Korn shell) we use doesn't recognise dos2unix.
I've looked at the man pages for sed and it's quite complex.  Also,
there aren't any characters in the file for linefeeds - it just seems to
be a flat file.  I may try pasting into Ms Word and play about with page
width to try and get some result.

Thanks anyway

How about :

- dos2unix
- sed

I presume you mean the \r\n and \n linefeeds; or is something else used?
