Run your files through:
perl -i.bak -pe 'chomp; $_.="\r\n";'

    My favorite switch is -l, and this is why:
    perl -i.bak -ple 'BEGIN{$/="\n"}'
    gets you from Unix to DOS (or should) and changing "\n" to "\r\n" gets you back.

    Update: assuming you're always converting to the system you run the command on, that is--the -l flag gives you native line-endings.

    Though of course if you're in MSDOS, you presumably need to fiddle with the quotes some.
