every POSIX or Cygwin platform:
   gawk '//' fileFromTextMount > fileWithLFOnlyOnBinMount
$ cat <file> | tr -d '\r'

Save a cat:
$ tr -d '\r' < <file>

d'oh, right :-)

or, if you might have other "\r"s in the file,

$ sed -e 's/\r$//' <file>

Actually, just running something through sed seems to do it for me on a
bin mount (though maybe this is just the same as running something
through gawk).

I believe this works because *some* (not all IIRC) versions of sed read in text mode by default. The point of my original post, however, was that I am guessing that 'tr' is faster than sed/awk.
