Visual C++ Ver 5 Editor

System is WinNT4, and Win95.
I need a macro which saves text files (.cpp, .h, .rc2) in unix format?
or how can this be done?

you need to take _read() and _write() fonction this function don't perform the translation 10+13. But because your file already having 10+13 in your Text file you have to translate each  10+13 in 10 (if it's needed) and use _write() to create you new file.  I use that for binary file, but UNIX to WIN.

By unix format, I mean in unix you view a dos file and it has at the end of every line a ^M character.
This is because dos sends a carriage return & line feed at the end of every line. Where as unix only does one of them (Carriage return), anyway the codes are 010 and 013, and VBscript in VC++5 does have the constants vbCr and vbCrLf (also vbLf). Does that make things a bit clearer?

makes sense.  But I suspect that you can't make vissual C save files in a "unix" format.  Your best bet will probably be to write a c program to convert from one format to the other.  It should be pretty easy.

Yes we do have unix and dos scripts that do it, but rather than calling the scripts x thousand times when we do a full recompile, it would be better to solve the problem at the source, i.e. save the files in unix format. :)

Could you give a bit more detail on using these functions, i.e. scanning the file, replacing chars, and then writing the file... And are you sure that the write() call doesn't append the end of line codes to each line?
