Try to find a program "crlf" in your path (comes with MiNT, try "crlf
-h").  If you have Perl you can also do

	perl -pi -e 's/\r\n/\n/' FILENAME[s]

Both crlf and the Perl one-liner will do in-place substitution.

As a last resort you can use tr:

	tr -d '\r' <OLDNAME >NEWNAME

If you load a file into vim (not vi!) you may be able to change the CRLF
by typing "ESC:set fileformat=unix" and then save the file ("ESC:wq").
