I have a text file that contains unwanted LF characters (as well as needed LF's at the end of each record), but they are contained in the same text string each time. Is there a MS-DOS / NotePad /WordPad method to find these strings and replace them with text w/o the LF? If not, I guess I can use a shareware utility but it seems there must be a way to do this 'native' in MS-DOS; I just don't know it.
