Do you mean originated from Linux?

Also if its from Linux heres the solution.

If you’re using a UNIX based system to transfer the files to a Windows system, there are some commands that let you convert the text file(s) you are transferring to a format Windows can understand.

The dos2unix and unix2dos command


You can use command line to safely convert files from UNIX to Windows and vice versa. To convert a Windows text file to a UNIX text file, enter this:

dos2unix windows.txt unix.txt

The above command converts and replaces “windows.txt” file to “unix.txt”. To convert a UNIX text file to a Windows text file, enter this command:

unix2dos unix.txt windows.txt

The above command will convert a UNIX created text file called “unix.txt” to a Windows compatible text file called “windows.txt”.

The awk command

The awk command also lets you convert a file from UNIX to Windows and vice versa. To convert a Windows file to a UNIX file, enter the following command:

awk '{ sub("\r$", ""); print }' windows.txt > unix.txt

To convert a UNIX text file called “unix.txt” to a Windows text file called “windows.txt”, enter the following command:

awk 'sub("$", "\r")' uniz.txt > windows.txt
