cr - converts text files between nix EOL and dos EOL
cr - | + <input file> <output file>
Text files, such as tle files, that come from a dos source usualy have
the ^M symbol at the end of every line. Cr converts files between the
dos newline format and the normal *nix newline format by stripping the
^M to convert dos to *nix, using the ’-’ option, or adding ^M to a *nix
file to create the proper dos file when the ’+’ option is used.
Although this extra character is not often a problem, programs like
seesat5, which are data driven will encounter parsing problems when the
extra character is present. It is these problems that cr is intended to
- | + One or the other of these options is required. The ’-’ option is
used to remove ^M from all newlines found in the dos file. The
’+’ option is used to add ^M to every newline found in a *nix

in the dos environment as well, standard input is not used.

seesat5(1), seesat5(7), SEESAT5.INI(5), tle(5)
Cr is not an inteligent program. It methodicaly replaces/removes the
offending character when it finds it in the correct context. Newline
sequences found in contexts other than ’newline’ will be
replaced/removed just like those found in the proper context. Passing a
binary file through cr is not advised, for this reason. Send all
