how about redirection: expand file > tmp_file ; mv tmp_file file

Sure, but that doesn't solve the problem with batch runs. I can't do

expand *.cpp

which would have been very easy.

#or choose a sufficiently powerful shell, such as bash

for file in *.cpp
 expand $file > tmp_file
 mv tmp_file $file

#See also nntp://
