missing unix2dos and dos2unix in ubuntu 10.04

unix2dos and dos2unix were handy tools used to convert files' endings from/to windows and Linux.
after i installed ubuntu 10.04 then installed the tofrodos package as usual i was surprised that the two programs doesn't exist , after some searching i discovered that the programs were just given different names
