This program is intended as a utility to help software developers ensure that their source file names are distinguishable on MS-DOS and 14-character SYSV platforms. To perform this task, doschk reads a list of filenames and produces a report of all the conflicts that would arise if the files were transferred to a MS-DOS or SYSV platform.
