[ic] Removing carriage returns from description

I'm sure this has come up before.. I think I even figured it out once.

A supplier provided me with a product database in csv format. I can 
import it into Excel or Access and it is formatted ok. But the 
description fields contain carriage returns (I think that's what they 
are) which show up as squares. These are causing problems when I try to 
export to a text file. How can I remove these pesky critters? I've tried 
many things such as fromdos in linux but can't quite get what I want. 
Any hints? magic perl snippets?
