How can I detect DOS line breaks in a file?

I have a bunch of files. Some are Unix line endings, many are DOS. I'd like to test each file to see if if is dos formatted, before I switch the line endings.

How would I do this? Is there a flag I can test for? Something similar?


You could search the string for \r\n. That's DOS style line ending.

EDIT: Take a look at this
