On linux it is trivial to convert line feeds to carriage returns using the
tr command:  tr '\n' '\r' < in.txt > out.txt Similar commands can be used
for Windows and Mac.   Another thing to consider is the possibility that
some editors might leave other control characters in the files or be
storing data in 16 bit UDF formats.
