DOS text files traditionally have CR/LF (carriage return/line feed) pairs
as their new line delimiters while Unix text files traditionally have
LFs (line feeds) to terminate each line.
Tofrodos comprises one program, "fromdos" alias "todos", which converts
text files to and from these formats. Use "fromdos" to convert DOS
text files to the Unix format, and "todos" to convert Unix text files
to the DOS format.

tofrodos (1.7.7.debian.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release
* Fixed watchfile to mangle version correctly
CLARIFICATION added after this upload got accepted:  By accident this new
upstream release got the package revision -2, but the orig.source was indeed
included in this upload, so the package got accepted before I noticed this
error.  So if you wonder where 1.7.7.debian.1-1 is: There is none and will
never be. Sorry.
