Also, 'tr' and many editors. For 'tr', it seems:

  cat > new.filename | tr -d \r < old.filename

works. There might be a better way (and it's quite possible the above
is wrong, but it's off the top of my head, so give me some slack :)).
As far as editors, my personal fave (joe) can do it by using 'find'
(ctrl+k-f), pressing ` then ctrl+M, choosing replace, and then not
typing anything. It will highlight the first ^M, at which point you
press 'R' (for replace Rest) and ta-da, they're all gone.
