|Summary||0015520: version of dos2unix doesnt support --info / -i option|
|Description||Can Someone please update the dos2unix package shipped in CentOS 7 to something that's at least from the last 4 years?|
The current version 6.0.3 does not even support the --info option. Support for this in dos2unix was added in version 7.1 back in October of 2014.
2014-10-06: Version 7.1
* New: Option -i, --info to print file information.
This new option prints number of DOS, Unix, and Mac line breaks, the byte
order mark, and if the file is text or binary. And it can print the names
of files that would be converted.
As a sysadmin who often has to write scripts, I was very disappointed to find such an old version shipped with what is the "latest" version of CentOS (at the time of writing this).
The current version is so old, I cant even use the --info command line parameter, ridiculous.
Please for the love of god, stop clinging onto crusty versions of software. Please update this package.

|CentOS is a one-to-one rebuild of the upstream RHEL public sources. Requests for updates of platform contents need to be made to RH via https://bugzilla.redhat.com. If RH updates the package we will inherit those updates. As this is not a bug I am closing this ticket out.|
