This is about replacing the new line characters in text files created in unix systems so they can be easily visualized in windows.

Suppose you have a text file called "file1" which was created under unix/linux system. If you try to read it with notepad in windows it will be a mess. Do this:
1- Copy unix2win.jar to the directory where file1 is.
2- Open the windows console and call:
java -jar unix2win.jar file1 file2.txt

This will create a file called file2.txt with the very same content of file1, but it can be read with windows notepad easily.

I hope you find this useful :)
