Simplest might be to use BBEdit (or its smaller free sibling,
TextWrangler) to batch replace \n (line feeds -- current Mac OS X and
Unix) with \r (carriage returns -- "old Apple" e.g. Mac OS 9).
BBEdit/TW allow you to to undertake the replace across a large set of
files (based on various criteria so you only replace on the files you
need) -- all without having to open all the files first.
For a "Unix" solution, see this (old) discussion on MacOSXHints:
is typical for Unix, there are at least a half-dozen different ways
to complete this task.
Another option (unused by me) would be "Linebreak Convert X":
All of these were found in under a minute with Google....
