Some text editors for Windows, such as UltraEdit (a commercial product), have a built-in feature to convert between DOS and UNIX format, and will edit a file in UNIX format if it is already in UNIX format.

I use Multi-Edit, it has the ability to seamlessly work with Linux files.  Greatest editor ever produced.  :~)

Don't forget the command line


I occasionaly need to run this on submitted .info files where every line ends with ^M

especially as the Linux dos2unix command has an annoying habit of changing file permissions when it converts a file.
Although I was mainly pointing toward a solution that would prevent the ^M from being created in the first place, while the user is in Windows.
