What is iso2dos?
iso2dos is a small utility program I wrote when I lacked a program to quickly and easily convert some iso 8859-1 documents to the pc8 character set (codepage 437). It also handles conversion in the opposite direction, and will translate any method of terminating lines (cr, crlf or lf) into the local convention (which is crlf for DOS).
