Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] CR LF line endings

1) you should not have to convert idfs -- unless you want to read them in IDF Editor.  EnergyPlus will automatically read Unix line ending files.

2) If you want to do it anyway or for other reasons, look here:

and download the "ToDos.exe". 
Command line use:  ToDos *.idf
will convert all to DOS format.

( www.textpad.com is a nice text editor)
as is ultraedit.

Dear All,

I am currently generating 30 thousand files using Matlab.

I have gone through the suggestions on the support group for:  "Unix file format file detected Please convert the file with a text editor to have CR LF line endings" already and cannot find a solution for my issue.

I have a text editor that converts Unix file format to DOS one by one, so as you can imagine converting all 30 thousand files is not feasible.

I am wondering if anyone can help me sort this out at the initial level. Is there something that I can do to my original X.idf file so that the outputs from Matlab have CR LF line endings?

When I open the X.idf file before importing it into Matlab, it works fine and there are no issues with it after I generate the other 30 thousand files either. So that leads me to believe that I have no problem with X.idf but the outputs from Matlab have issues.

Any help will be appreciated.
