ODOC: About fromdos command
A utility that converts MS-DOS text files to Unix text files, as the two systems have different ideas on what a line separator is. The fromdos command converts text files from the DOS format to the Unix format, while todos converts text files from the Unix format to the DOS format.
The above example would take a MS-DOS or Microsoft Windows file or other file with different line separators and format the file with new line separators to be read in Linux / Unix.
