Running dos2unix on a list of files

Hi,

I have a directory structure, with loads of files in. I can find all the files simply by doing

find ./ -type file -name "*" -print

However, I then want to run dos2unix on each of these files, and preserve the original name. For example

dos2unix dave dave

Any ideas on how to do this as a one liner, or a few lines?

Thanks

Alistair

Hi Alistair_Williams,

 find ./ -type file -name "*" -print | xargs dos2unix

Slightly simpler
find . -type f -exec dos2unix {} \;
You don't need the -name and using find's exec option is more efficient than passing to xargs
