dos2unix and mac2unix as Perl one-linersThe equivalent of the dos2unix and mac2unix file conversion commands, written in one line using Perl!
Usefull command to convert a windows-formatted text file to the unix/linux format from the command-line. It converts in-place ("-i" switch) the "\r\n" to "\n" characters using a regular expression.
perl -pi -e's/\015\012/\012/g' dos_formated_file.txt
Usefull command to convert a mac-formatted text file to the unix/linux format from the command-line. It converts in-place ("-i" switch) the "\r" that is the end of line character in mac to "\n" characters using perl built-in capabilities.
perl -w015l12pi -e1 mac_formated_file.txt
which is equivalent to the following but adds a new line at the end:
perl -pi -e's/\015/\012/g' mac_formated_file.txt
