EOLtoCSV.sh is a Bourne shell script that converts values delimited by new line characters into comma separated values. The following before and after table shows what this script does. EOLtoCSV.sh accepts the list through stdin and outputs the result to stdout.

cat list.txt | EOLtoCSV.sh > newlist.txt
After a full year, while writing my new "EOL Converter.sh" script, I've realized that I uploaded a bad version of EOLtoCSV.sh above. I don't know how that happened. Why didn't anybody tell me? :-P The one that I attached below is the good version. Please download and use the one below, instead.
By the way, if you have any blank lines in the input, it will be converted to comma separated value (CSV) as well. This is not a bug, it's semantically correct, because you might have empty value fields. The following is an example.
If you don't want the blank lines to be converted, you can use the free StripBlankLines.class Java utility to convert it, before piping your data in this EOLtoCSV.sh script. You can download the StripBlankLines.class utility elsewhere on this site. The following command is an example of this situation:
cat list.txt | java StripBlankLines | EOLtoCSV.sh > newlist.txt
