    Free recursive DOS-to-UNIX text-conversion utility?

    Anybody know a free utility that can recursively convert newlines? I'm envisioning a command something like:

    dos2unix *.htm /s

    I could write a batch file to use a non-recursive utility but would rather not if there's a one-shot tool.

    (RoboHelp 9 puts CR/LF newlines in its Web help output and Chrome doesn't like that.)

    Chrome should only wrap at <BR> tags, that's the whole point of HTML. Are you sure the HTML is kosher?

    cheers, Paul

    I used to use a utility (pair of utilities) called ToFroDos, which gives ToDos.exe and FromDos.exe. Very simple and straightforward.
