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
so:
the unix2dos become todos
and the dos2unix become fromdos
you can adopt to this new names or give them aliases if you wish...
hope that was useful.

    the tools are combined in 'todos' now

    use
    apt-get install tofrodos
    todos -h

    Be careful! Old (good) dos2unix did only text files, this "improved" toy has no problem with any binary....
