You already have a couple of good answers, but since you asked for a
text editor, I thought I'd point out that I generally use vi/vim for
this purpose.


The ^M is actually Ctrl-v and then Enter.  This command will substitute
out all the end-of-lines.

(A couple of days ago I actually put the end-of-lines *into* a file that
I knew was going to be edited in Windows.)

ASCII silly question, get a silly ANSI.
