TRCH converts all instances of one character to another. This is really
useful if you need to convert a text file between UNIX (end of line
is "^J") and DOS (end of line is "^M^J" or "\n").
trch c1 c2 < file > file
< file = input file
> file = output file
c1 character1, e.g. 'A'
c2 character2, e.g. 'B'
TRCH supports NLS (national language support).
trch ^I * < test.txt >test2.txt Replaces tabs with '*'
trch e X < test.txt > test3.txt Replaces 'e' with 'X'
trch \n $ < test.txt > test4.txt Replaces end of line ('\n') with '$*'
trch ^J ^M^J < unix.txt > dos.txt Replaces Unix to DOS format
trch \n ^J < dos.txt > unix.txt Replaces DOS to Unix format
