Re: Linux format and MS format question
In short the issue is that on Unix lines end with a 'linefeed'-character while on windows they end with both a 'carriage return' and a 'linefeed'. Most distributions ship with a tool called dos2unix / unix2dos which can do the conversion in other cases you can do it using a 'good' text editor. If you can't find one which can do it you can for instance open the text file using lets say openoffice and save it as a rtf or doc file and then the lines are correct for sure.

Re: Linux format and MS format question
In case you just want to add/remove carriage return, you can use the following instead of dos2unix...

Add carriage return (from UNIX to DOS):

sed -ie "s/$/\r/" file
Remove carriage return (from DOS to UNIX)

sed -ie "s/\r//" file
Answer based on Thunderbird's reply -- I didn't understand the question.
